VASQUEZ, Malva Marina. The Sublime and the Unforeseen in Miltín 1934, an Avant-garde Novel by Juan Emar. Aisthesis [online]. 2011, n.50, pp. 216-229. ISSN 0718-7181. doi: 10.4067/S0718-71812011000200012.
In Miltín 1934 Juan Emar unfolds two conceptions of sublime, considering this concept as a stereotyped fact, an art for bourgeoisie consumption, kept within a mimetic and naturalistic aesthetics. Emar satirizes this type of art as well as the art-critique that was dominant in the country at the time. His avant-garde proposal endorses an aesthetic of the sublime as a denial of the referential effect, which opens to Foucault's Unforeseen (yet-not-thought). The aesthetic of Miltín 1934 is an attempt of an impossible writing, and an outline for the aesthetics of a fluent unexpected poetic, proposal that Emar will fully develop in his posthumous work, Umbral.
