Abstract
Al indagar en la obra del escritor Fernando Vallejo (1942, Medellín, Colombia), desde un orden “genotextual”, notamos cómo el carácter híbrido de la forma “autoficcional” que subyace a la relativización de fronteras en El río del tiempo obedece a un mecanismo consciente y deliberado. Un factor del que se sirve el autor, pero que parece no haber sido atendido por el lector incauto, y ha contribuido a asociar su nombre y el de su personaje “Fernando” a figura maldita. A la comprensión de estos y otros factores asociados tales como la coherencia, apunta el presente trabajo donde vemos que la escritura en tanto producción del sujeto y reflejo de vida se imbrican en un juego composicional articulado por los mecanismos de la memoria y la ambigüedad que se convierten en definitorios de su autoficción, pero también en un recurso que explota para hacer de la escritura un espacio de reflexión (“decir” y “hacer”) y un medio de liberación frente a todo tipo de poderes o determinismos (míticos, sociopolíticos, religiosos y géneros discursivos).
Through a “genotextual” investigation of the works of Fernando Vallejo (1942, Medellín, Colombia), we discover the conscious and deliberatemechanism that the hybrid, boundary-relativizing nature of El río del tiempo [River of Time] auto-fictional form obeys. There appear factors that seem to have been neglected by the unwary reader in a lapsed moment, but at the same time that exploit the supposedly author, and have contributed to the association of Vallejo’s name and that of his character “Fernando” as cursed. The present work is dedicated to understanding these and other related factors such as the coherence. Within its pages, we can see how the writing, as the development or production of the subject, and as a reflection on life, overlaps itself in a compositional game played via mechanisms of memory and ambiguity which transform into something that defines his auto-fiction, but that at the same time remains an exploitable resource, turning the writing into a space for reflection (“decir” and “hacer”) and into ameans of liberation fromall sorts of potentialities and determinisms (mythical, sociopolitical, religious, and other discursive genres).
