TALA, Pamela. Migration, return and lenguaje in current Latin American narrative: El espíritu de mis padres sigue subiendo en la lluvia by Patricio Pron. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2012, n.26, pp. 115-133. ISSN 0716-5811. doi: 10.4067/S0716-58112012000200008.
This article examines how, in his last novel, El espíritu de mis padres sigue subiendo en la lluvia, the young Argentinean writer, Patricio Pron, creatively presents, at least two processes: first, he shows the reader the complex process of migration/return and some related constructions of meaning. On the other hand (and at the same time), the narrative machine set up by Pron relates/ articulates the migration/return theme to the unavoidable operations ocurring in literary language, which demanded until its limits of its expression, seeks different ways to express the vital experience of the narrator, his family and his country.
