Synopsis:
The subject of fiction and life is a constant that, since distant times, has been expressed through literature. Yet in the work of no other modern author does it have the force and inventiveness as it does in the short stories of Juan Carlos Onetti. It is not an exaggeration to say that Onetti s work is almost entirely conceived to show the subtle and rich way in which human beings have built a parallel existence made up of words and images as unreal as they are persuasive to take refuge in when we want to escape the tragedies and limitations that real life imposes upon our freedom and dreams. In this essay, Vargas Llosa examines how Onetti used fiction to create an alternate reality a reality in which the answer to our daily defeats is fleeing to a fantasy world. Description in Spanish: El tema de la ficcion y la vida es una constante que, desde tiempos remotos, aparece en la literatura. Pero acaso en ningun otro autor moderno aparezca con tanta fuerza y originalidad como en las novelas y los cuentos de Juan Carlos Onetti, una obra que, sin exagerar demasiado, podriamos decir esta casi integramente concebida para mostrar la sutil y frondosa manera como los seres humanos hemos venido construyendo una vida paralela, de palabras e imagenes tan mentirosas como persuasivas, donde ir a refugiarnos para escapar de los desastres y limitaciones que a nuestra libertad y a nuestros suenos opone la vida tal como es. Basicamente lo que yo hago en este ensayo es investigar la manera en la que Onetti utilizo la ficcion como un mundo alternativo. La respuesta a la derrota cotidiana es la imaginacion: huir hacia un mundo de fantasia. Es decir, aquella operacion de donde nacio la literatura, por la que existe la literatura y por eso el titulo del libro. MARIO VARGAS LLOSA
