MAC-MILLAN KUTHE, Mary Fleur. Ethics/esthetic in Fantomas contra los vampiros multinacionales of Julio Cortázar: a supplementary relationships. Alpha [online]. 2017, n.45, pp.171-184. ISSN 0718-2201.

This work focuses on the interpretation of Fantomas contra los vampiros multinacionales,a narrative of great complexity by Julio Cortázar, a hybrid that is not so well-known. The novel presents the problematic between ethical commitment and aesthetical commitment, since it is focused on the assistance and participation of Cortázar on the Russel Tribunal sessions and human rights violations in Latin American countries. The proposal for interpretation is to consider the relationship between the ethical and the aesthetical in light of the derridian concept of supplement. In other words, the ethical is not a marginal element, and there are no hierarchical differences between both. The supplement implies a new way of thinking about all binomial relationships.

Keywords : ethical/aesthetical conflict; Cortázar; supplement.
