the central hypothesis of this critical text is that eltit?s novels are permeated by a strategy: that of the essay, as understood in the etymological sense of the word, as an "attempt" or "experiment". nothing is definitive in these novels, neither the subject nor the discourse: the subject is always a figure in movement, in transit and the discourse constructs and reconstructs itself right before the reader?s eyes. without a doubt this is a "post-vanguard" strategy or, also, "post-modern", whose meaning the critical text tries to situate in the context of the contemporary chilean novel. even when the experimental strategy runs through all of eltit?s narrative order, the quotes privilege the novel por la patria.
