Abstract

DI MEGLIO, Estefanía. THE PARADOX OF WITNESS IN THE LITERARY KEY. Acta lit. [online]. 2020, n.60, pp.33-52. ISSN 0717-6848.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29393/al60-2ptem10002.

Abstract: The present article is structured in two parts. The first one is a theoretical part. It analyses, by dissaggregating its parts, the paradox of witness formulated about Primo Levi -the perfect witness- in relation to Nazi camps, by the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben. In second place, this article studies the mechanisms by which the paradox of witness is recreated in literature, particularly in a novel about the latest dictatorship, La casa de los conejos by Laura Alcoba.

Keywords : Paradox of witness; Giorgio Agamben; Argentinean literature; dictatorship; Laura Alcoba.
