RIVEIRO, María Belén. César Aira in Interviews: Building a Writer's Figure (1981-2001). Trab. soc. [online]. 2019, n.33, pp.61-80. ISSN 1514-6871.

This article focuses on how César Aira builds his writer's figure from the moment his first book is published (1981) until 2001, year when I identify numerous indicators of a growing prestige. The documentary work I carried out allowed me to compile interviews granted by Aira published in periodic publications of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires. Therefore, I was able to analyse the meaning of the image of hidden writer Aira is usually identified with. This article studies Aira's account, his answers in interviews, as an object of study in relation to his trajectory and the literary field with the focus on the various meanings assigned by Aira himself. I have built a periodization divided into three moments to analyse how Aira presents himself in public as a writer, and I have used terms Aira himself has introduced: the avant-garde writer, the personal myth, and the silent writer.

Palabras clave : sociology of literature; writer's figure; Argentine literature; literary field.
