Brouillé, dansant, enchevêtré… mirada e ilusión enunciativa en la ficción cortazariana

Abstract : Julio Cortázar’s writings bring together antagonistic levels of reality and interweave levels of utterances as well as they create an effect of temporal-spatial passages. Narrative instance and diegesis converge to constitute the typical cortazarian metafictional device. The compositional complexity of his writings is the correlate of an experience of literary reading amounting to a textual journey programmed in such a way that the reader’s gaze which perceives the text has to skip from one part to another to be able to interpret it. In Cortázar’s fictional universe, the gaze is a topic that from a thematic point of view enables the reader to see things in a different way ; and narratively, it presents ever-shifting mutations of the enunciative system (a web of voices) that can even become chameleonic. This article analyses how the gaze is foregrounded in three texts by Cortázar : chapters 7 and 8 of Rayuela (1963), and the short story « Graffiti » published in Queremos tanto a Glenda (1980).
