BIANCOTTO, Natalia. An eccentric becoming. The nonsense in las invitadas , by Silvina Ocampo. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2019, n.39, pp.55-71. ISSN 0716-5811.

This work proposes to read Las invitadas (1961), by Silvina Ocampo, according to the hypothesis that these stories are organized by the same concerns that encourage the author’s initial and late production. It is proposed to discuss the critical consensus that defines this moment of his narrative as a stage of maturity, determined by finished stories and by a compositional logic away from the efect of transience, foolishness and dispersion of their frst and last books. The stories are read as portraits of the moment in which a life twists into an eccentric becoming. The result exposes the way in which Las invitadas is located halfway between the precariousness of a story that ends in the character’s idiotic trait is made and the nonsense of a fiction as a record of idiocy. These stories show an insistent concern about the nonsensical forms of rarity, ambiguity and inconclusivity.

Palabras clave : Las invitadas; Silvina Ocampo; eccentricity; becoming; nonsense.
