Creativity and Science in Contemporary Argentine Literature

Between Romanticism and Formalism

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Joanna Page

This is the first book-length study in English of three key authors in contemporary Argentine literature: Marcelo Cohen, Guillermo Martínez, and Ricardo Piglia. Author Joanna Page argues that these writers draw on models and theories from mathematics and science and put them to a very different use than their English-language counterparts: to defend intellectual activity and to testify to the endless capacity of literature to thrive through self-renewal, reinvention, and the creation of new forms. The syntheses these writers imagine between literature and science are more productive and nuanced than many of those that have shaped recent debates on literature, science, and technology within the European and North American academies.
