Resumen

SEPULVEDA ERIZ, Magda. City, Television and Fantasies: Alexis Figueroa's Vírgenes del Sol Inn Cabaret. Aisthesis [online]. 2008, n.44, pp.133-143. ISSN 0718-7181.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-71812008000100008.

The Chilean poet Alexis Figueroa's Vírgenes del Sol Inn Cabaret (1986) recreates the complexity of relationships in the television culture, in Latin American authoritarian and neoliberal society. With the curtailing of public space in the streets, the television usurps its place and imposes its one and only coherence: profit. This is why the city under the TV's influence is depicted by Figueroa using a cabaret as metaphor. A location where we find two main actions: showing off and watching. In this way, the reflections of the poem revolve around marketing subjectivities and subsequently learning from acting or watching.

Palabras clave : Chilean poetry; Alexis Figueroa; city; dictatorship; television.
