Juan José Saer

ESSAY. SEIX BARRAL, 2006. 258 PAGES.

Written by one of the greatest Argentine writers, the attraction of these articles on literature is twofold: they provide passionate readers with valuable information while also dazzling with the beauty of the prose. Trabajos (Works) is written in Saer's inimitable style and is testimony to his firm conception of artistic creation.

The volume brings together texts published mostly in newspapers and magazines. This collaboration with mass media was a new experience for the writer. In Trabajos, Saer analyzes the work of some of the writers who were most important to him: Cervantes, Onetti, Kafka, Flaubert, Robbe-Grillet, Musil, Felisberto Hernández, and Robert Walser, offering an enlightening perspective. But he also addresses other questions such as the Genet/Sartre slides, The Thousand and One Nights, the Argentine translation of Ulysses, the Dostoievski-Bielinsky relationship and the work of Hugo Gola.

In Trabajos Saer reveals his passion for writing, understood as the invention of worlds and processes. His standpoints are always faithful to the principles of his vision of literature and art, revealing his brilliant intelligence.
