Abstract

PELLEJERO, Eduardo. BORGES AND THE POLITICS OF EXPRESSION THE TRANSVALUATION OF NATIONAL HISTORYE. Eidos [online]. 2008, n.8, pp.196-211. ISSN 1692-8857.

The idea that is possible to produce new forms of subjectivity, trough an intelligent use of expression, has been recurring in modern and contemporary literature. Fiction, in this sense, has played a central role in the (des)construction of national identities. Even if programmatically he always stud up on the antipodes of literary commitment, in his youth Borges saw in art a «political compensatory func-tion» of this type. Namely, he claimed that, in order to escape from the tight spots in which we get enclosed, literature can help us in the work of reinvent ourselves as individual and collective subjects. Using concepts from Deleuze and Foucault, Rancière and Burgoyne, this article tries to analyze that secret borgean politics, as a case study of a wider aspiration of literature to operate on the agency of the forms we have to say «I» and «Us».

Keywords : Borges; Deleuze; literature; subjectivity; politics; expression.
