Geografias ficcionales: el Uruguay de Copi

Ilse Logie UGent (2013) CAHIERS DE LIRICO. 2013(8). p.1-14
abstract
In his novelette L’Uruguayen (1972) Copi looks at Uruguay from different vantage points: on the one hand with Argentinian and Uruguayan eyes, on the other hand with French eyes, the text being conceived as a letter to a French correspondent. In keeping with Copi’s poetics Uruguay is pesented as a grotesque exaggeration, and the utopian image of the small neighbouring country as it traditionally exists in Argentina is ridiculed. The so-called Uruguayan identity here takes the shape of a fictitious geography, so L’Uruguayen can be looked upon as a precursor of other, more recent pseudo-ethnological novels such as Los fantasmas (1990) by César Aira.
