dc.description.abstract This dissertation analyzes the work of the writer Juan José Saer (Serodino, Argentina 1937-Paris, France 2005) by identifying the correlation between his essayistic and narrative work, and thus focusing on the convergence zone between these two fields. Saer's writings demonstrate a constant tension between the massive circulation and consumption of cultural products, including the genre of novel, and certain marginalized literature. Specifically, the thesis analyzes aspects that involve his conception of the theory of novel, the fiction as an anthropological speculation, the cultural industry, the role of mass media in literature, and the binomial concept of the reader and public, having in the horizon the works of Theodor W. Adorno, Walter Benjamin, Umberto Eco and Jose Ortega y Gasset, among others. As the axis of both fields (his fictional and essayist writing), the thesis studies the hybrid text El río sin orillas (1991) where it converges a series of issues that are crucial for understanding Saer's vision of literature. The presence of the river is iconic in Saer's narrative. The form of the novel and the narration are in constant conflict in Saer's literary works. The perception that his fictional and essayist work must be understood as complementary guides the whole body of this dissertation. The first two chapters cover the aforementioned topics. In the following two chapters, this project analyzes two novels, El entenado (1983) and Glosa (1986) under the optic of memory and experience. The thesis also reviews the work of criticism around Saer´s writings. Metaphorically speaking, Saer's entire body of writing can be seen as a single text that has different expressions in the totality of his literary work. As a result, this project contemplates the difficulties of integrating fragmented narratives into a singular completed work. en_US
