Criticism and Fiction

Ricardo Piglia

NON FICTION. ANAGRAMA, 1986. 228 PAGES.

Criticism and Fiction is a lucid, passionate reflection on literature, theory and aesthetics that brings us closer to the dynamic thought of Ricardo Piglia. Through a series of interviews, Piglia reveals himself as an attentive, persuasive reader. The issues addressed in these pages include a comprehensive survey of Modern Argentine literature – Arlt, Borges, Cortázar – and some of the author’s main influences – Benjamin, Gombrowicz, Brecht – as well as discussions of crime literature, the relationship between literature and politics, cinema and psychoanalysis and also his experiences as an editor. This is a book that shows without a doubt that Ricardo Piglia’s theory is as essential as his fiction.
