FAZIO, Silvina Celeste. The diverse as a way of delegated auto-representation: about the miscellaneous prose in Manual del distraído from Alejandro Rossi. Rev. Pilquen. secc. cienc. soc. [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.4, pp.18-27. ISSN 1851-3123.

The discussion about the life writing is a recurrent disquisition in the ambit of literary criticism and theory. The problem focuses on questioning the scope of discourse to configure the representation of the subject, which implies reflecting on whether he possesses or not an anterior consistency, previous to the liguistic act it self wich the author uses to appear in the text. In this context, autobiography and autofiction stand as two extreme poles: between experience and fable, between trust in full representation -characteristic of traditional aesthetics- and the dilemma of the referential fallacy -installed by the literary vanguards. This paper will focus on the Manual del distraído, of Alejandro Rossi, to try to prove that his condition of miscellaneous book, that is to say, variety of texts without thematic or generic affiliations, is presented as a delegated mode of auto-representation overcoming these theoretical dichotomies. The objective will be to establish how this production of Rossi, in avoiding the conventional discursive requirements, undertakes a substitute task of the traditional autobiographical projects whose reference potential is questioned. With this purpose, the article will focus on the analysis of textual forms through which literary elections will be exposed, cultural disquisitions and experiential moments, metonymic constituents that forge a derivative continuity between the real and textual subject. It will be considered that, thus constructed, identity is presented as a proposal based not on empirical correspondence or similarity, but on the series of discursive senses and strategies from which the self intervenes in the space of writing.
