Formas breves by Ricardo Piglia( Book )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formas breves es una recopilación de textos misceláneos que el propioautor describe como páginas perdidas en el diario de un escritor . Enellas reflexiona sobre la literatura, desde la ficción hasta elpensamiento crítico; desde el diálogo con los autores que se hanconvertido en la estela de su obra e imaginario -Arlt, Macedonio,Borges, Gombrowicz, Kafka, Chéjov, Joyce y Hemingway, entre otros- hastalos temas más abstractos, como la naturaleza del relato corto o el puntode inflexión entre realidad y ficción. Este es un homenaje a laliteratura misma; un lugar donde se pone en juego su doble filo: unaficción que se lee como una verdad apócrifa y un realismo que aparececomo un artificio veraz

Short stories
The absent city by Ricardo Piglia( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in Spanish and English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Absent City takes the form of a futuristic detective novel. In the end, however, it is a meditation on the nature of totalitarian regimes, on the transition to democracy after the end of such regimes, and on the power of language to create and define reality. Ricardo Piglia combines his trademark avant-garde aesthetics with cultural and political insights into Argentina's history and contemporary condition in this work." "The novel follows Junior, a reporter for a daily Buenos Aires newspaper, as he attempts to locate a secret machine that contains the mind and the memory of a woman named Elena. While Elena produces stories that reflect on actual events in Argentina, the police are seeking her destruction because of the revelations of atrocities that she - the machine - is disseminating through texts and taped recordings. The book thus portrays the race to recover the history and memory of a city and a country where history has largely been obliterated by political repression. Its narratives - all part of a detective story, all part of something more - multiply as they intersect with each other, like the streets and avenues of Buenos Aires itself."--BOOK JACKET.

Homenaje a Ricardo Piglia by Colloque International "Hommage à Ricardo Piglia"( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En este volumen se recogen los trabajos que fueron presentados al Coloquio Internacional de homenaje a la obra de Ricardo Piglia, realizado en la Sorbona en 2008 y organizado por cuatro universidades francesas con el apoyo de la universidad de Princeton. Con este homenaje se ha querido responder una vez más al desafío planteado por una escritura que es hoy una de las más estimulantes y agudas de la literatura contemporánea en lengua española y que marca un hito fundamental para la tradición rioplatense. La seducción de la ficción de Piglia tanto como la audacia de su mirada crítica solicitan constantemente lecturas que indaguen con lucidez en sus propuestas. Los especialistas convocados aquí han buscado entonces profundizar el análisis de la poética de la creación, tanto como indicar nuevas articulaciones conceptuales y nuevas pistas teóricas a fin de explorar aspectos que han sido poco estudiados. Los artículos reunidos en Homenaje a Ricardo Piglia ofrecen así un recorrido a la vez amplío y minucioso por los textos del autor y comentan diferentes géneros -cuento, novela, ensayo, diario del escritor, reescrituras- centrándose en sus estrategias narrativas, en su lugar dentro de la tradición argentina y en las pautas de cambio o de continuidad que organizan la unidad del proyecto literario. Desde las contribuciones que intentan encuestas exhaustivas hasta las que enfocan puntos muy precisos del mapa textual, el conjunto de estos trabajos se propone abrir nuevos pasajes hacia la interpretación de una obra de gran exigencia, rigurosa y original."_Contracub
