Abstract

CORRO PENJEAN, Pablo Blas. DICTATORSHIP AND THE ILLNESSES OF LIGHT. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2013, n.28, pp.67-89. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112013000200005.

As part of an ongoing research Project about the historical and cultural manifestations of the consciousness of 'light' in Chile -considered as rethoric 'raw matter' in literary, photographic and cinematographic discourses regarding modernity at a local level- this paper presents philosophical, literary, sociological and cinematographic perspectives on Pinochet's dictatorship. All of these perspectives are unified by, and have a common ground in, the asthetic diagnosis of a time and a context affected by what we call 'the sickness of light'.

Keywords : dictatorship; sickness; light.
