Abstract:
This dissertation presents a study of the narrative of the Mexican writer Jose Revueltas (1914-1976), with special attention given to three of his novels: Los muros de agua (1941), Los días terrenales (1949) and El apando (1969). Our analysis explores two fundamental aspects found in the aforementioned novels. First, we posit the presence of a situation of idialogy, a conceptual notion of our own creation that reflects discursive expressions which tend toward ideological marginality of characterization and introspection as a narrative vehicle. Idialogy is the synthetic result of M. Bakhtin's concepts of ideology and the dialogic. Idialogy is reflected in novelistic texts through discursive practices that include dialogized interior monologues and internal dialogues in order to create discourses of resistance that are opposed to a dominant discursive situation. In our view, the character structure of Revueltas' novels responds to this idialogical situation as they are eminently marginal. The second aspect analyzed is the relation of time and space in the novels in question. In order to approach this aspect, we will refer to the Bakhtinian concept of chronotope and to Joseph Frank's idea of spatiality in the form. Revueltas' novels display a tendency to condense narrative times and spaces. Through this condensation one observes at once another tendency which is to reduce or retract spaces and detain time. Therefore, time becomes an evocation of the past and space takes precise geometrical forms. In particular, we study the formation and development of a chronotope of the prison. From the prison space of the Islas Mari as in Los muros de agua to a background of political and ideological clandestineness in Los días terrenales, ending with the presence of a reductionist carceral geometry in El apando, the chronotope of the prison serves as a framework for the inscription of counterdiscourses of the marginal elements in Revueltas' novels.
