Abstract

So, everything finished orbiting around the concern about the gap that exists between language and things designated by it, between word and reality. Language is an imperfect resource of communication, breaking its link with the world but also needing to coexists with it. But there's also the past narrative, that determines so deeply the way we narrate us the present. History is a continuum. Writing is always a political act.

Public Abstract

“La lengua a pedazos” deals with the concern about the gap that exists between language and things designated by it, between word and reality. Language is an imperfect resource of communication, breaking its link with the world but also inextricably needing to coexist with it.
