Abstract

The present work aims to include the works Crónicas de Londres (2012) by Gunter Silva Passuni and War by Candlelight: Stories (2005) by Daniel Alarcón in the Latin American migrant literature paradigm. The two Peruvian authors writes from Anglo-Saxon lands focusing on the complexity of the migrant subject in his double epistemic condition, emigrate and immigrate, related to the “double absence” theorized by Sayad and materialized in the texts through an intricate system of false presences and irreparable absences. Thanks to the set of symbolic and narrative strategies used by the authors, the bicultural literary experience becomes the only possibility for ubiquity and for a cultural reset of a subject in transit, in the border.
El objetivo del presente trabajo es insertar las colecciones de cuentos Crónicas de Londres (2012) de Gunter Silva Passuni y War by Candlelight: Stories (2005) de Daniel Alarcón en el paradigma de la literatura migrante latinoamericana. Estos dos autores peruanos escriben desde tierras anglosajonas enfocando la complejidad del sujeto migrante en su doble estatuto epistemológico: el de emigrado e inmigrado, correspondiente a la “doble ausencia” teorizada por Sayad y concretizada en los textos en una intricada red de presencias falaces y ausencias irremediables. Gracias al conjunto de estrategias simbólicas y narrativas utilizadas por los autores, la experiencia literaria, bifronte y bicultural, aparece entonces como única posibilidad de ubicuidad y recomposición cultural en un sujeto en tránsito, en la frontera.
