KOZAK, Claudia. Manuel Puig, politics and threshold. Cienc. docencia tecnol. [online]. 2011, n.43, pp.129-153. ISSN 1851-1716.

The article reads in Manuel Puig's literature a notion of politics beyond usual political discourses. Taking as a point of departure textual procedures which work with "folds", "inbetweens" and "thresholds", concerning particularly the use of intimate genres and spatial procedures, politics appears as a destabilization of discourses within themselves, doubting about certainty, and building new worlds which point to the transformation of status quo. The analysis focuses on three novels (Kiss of Spider Woman, Pubis Angelical and Eternal Curse on the Reader of These Pages) written during the 20th century seventies, which all along with The Buenos Aires Affair make up the "political cycle" within Manuel Puig's fiction, seeking how they build impolitical community.

Keywords : Argentinean literature; Impolitical community; Manuel Puig.
