Abstract

BERNARDI, María Belén. POSTNATIONAL AND POSTGLOBAL REPRESENTATIONS IN CAMINANDO BAJO EL MAR, COLGANDO DEL AMPLIO CIELO (2017) BY PATRICIO PRON. Acta lit. [online]. 2020, n.61, pp.121-135. ISSN 0717-6848.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29393/al61-13fpmb10013.

Abstract: In this paper, we will examine the representations of social groups and migrant subjects from the dismantling of the notions of nationalism and cosmopolitanism in Patricio Pron's latest children's book, Caminando bajo el mar, colgando del amplio cielo (2017). On the one hand, we will analyze how the subjective and global condition of the refugee is built. This image is introduced by the author himself in different places. On the other hand, we will investigate about the autobiographical aspects of the story and the construction of the figure of the diasporic writer. Also we will ask about the choice of the fable genre, since we believe that the author places in the children's audience the possibilities of realization of a utopian future, guarantor of universal hospitality, similar to that proclaimed by Kant in "Perpetual Peace".

Keywords : Cosmopolitanism; fable; children's literature; migration; postnationalism.
