Resumen

OLIVER, Felipe. Mano de obra [Labor Force]. The inside of a supermarket. La Palabra [online]. 2015, n.26, pp.75-84. ISSN 0121-8530.

In the novel Mano de obra [Labor Force] (2002), the acclaimed Chilean novelist Diamela Eltit extends a reflection about the current forms in which the ancient practice of labor exploitation occurs today, taking into account the impossibility of contemporary workers to organize themselves among equals to resist oppression, and finally the lack of ideology and memory that distinguishes late capitalism. To achieve these purposes, Eltit analyzes the daily life of supermarket employees proposing a parallel between the supermarket and a reality show, which allows an interesting reflection on the devices and instruments from which the contemporary proletariat is manipulated and repressed.

Palabras clave : Diamela Eltit; Reality show; Late capitalism; Proletariat; Mano de obra; Labor force.
