By Guadalupe Martí-Peña

Entre los múltiples modos de acercarse a un autor tan polifacético y prolífico como el escritor peruano Mario Vargas Llosa, quien ganó el premio Nobel de 2010, Guadalupe Martí-Peña ha elegido ver al novelista como ilusionista. Estudia ese mundo de fantasías y ensueños, ese campo de guerra aparentemente inofensivo donde l. a. literatura, el teatro, y los angeles pintura se alían con el escritor, el soñador, y el ilusionista para derrocar los angeles realidad. Centrándose en Elogio de l. a. madrastra y Los cuadernos de don Rigoberto, así como el efecto de l. a. ilusión en el proceso de l. a. lectura, arguye que Vargas Llosa hace uso de patrones teatrales, pictóricos y místicos para hacernos experimentar lo irreal como actual, el sueño como realidad y los angeles magia de los angeles ficción como un acto que nos otorga poder.

Con base a los estudios interartísticos, l. a. semiótica y las teorías de l. a. recepción, analiza cómo estos textos producen en los lectores los angeles triple ilusión de presenciar una obra dramática, contemplar un cuadro o entreoír una convers (ac)ión mística. El primer capitulo del libro se concentra en l. a. teatralidad que anima ambos textos. Partiendo de las teorías sobre los angeles recepción y l. a. semiótica teatral, Martí-Peña investiga el modo en que el autor transforma l. a. narración en actuación, l. a. ficción en functionality, y el leer en ver, haciendo que los lectores experimenten l. a. palabra escrita como una representación viva ante sus ojos. En el segundo reflexiona sobre los angeles función que desempeña los angeles pintura en los angeles materialización de los deseos e ilusiones de los personajes. Combinando estética pictórica y narración, y bajo el lente de las teorías sobre los angeles relación imagen-texto, examina las distintas funciones que desempeñan los cuadros dentro del sistema lingüístico donde operan. En el último capítulo, compara los escritos de Rigoberto con los angeles escritura de autoexamen que Michel Foucault describe en “L’écriture de soi.” Mientras que el asceta trata de transformar su vida en una obra de perfección ethical alejando de él las ilusiones, Rigoberto trata de transformar su existencia en una obra de arte congregando fantasías eróticas. Ambos textos encapsulan el primary ingrediente activo en los angeles escritura de Vargas Llosa: los angeles ficción no es sumisión ante l. a. vida sino por el contrario insurrección contra ella. El ilusionismo verbal se convierte en los angeles táctica más eficaz para llevar a cabo tal rebelión.
