CIFUENTES, Edgardo. Narrative and discoursive marks of light humour in Papelucho. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2011, n.24, pp. 15-32. ISSN 0716-5811. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112011000200002.
In this paper we analyze the humorous perspective of the events contained in the children's novel Papelucho, writen by Marcela Paz. The methodology is based mainly on the essay of Italo Calvino "Lightness". The analysis consists of detecting textual cues that evidence the predominancy of unusual consciousness and knowledge types while observing the referred facts; also, other cues such as word reference dissolution and the appearance of figurative images of lightness are considered. The results would lead us to make interpretative assumptions about the particularities of humor and world vision, from both the character and the humoristic consciousness that articulate the story.
