Description
Summary:Based on the fact that there are narrations over which the configuration of a nation is based (Benedict Anderson), this work’s author carries out an analysis on Las aventuras de la China Iron and on its proposal to go over the narration over which certain notions about “the argentinian” have been built. It is analyzed, particularly, the constructions of both genders man and woman. To carry out such an analyzis, this work has been devided in two main parts: the first one is a review on masculinities and gender that are in Martín Fierro —the Argentina’s fundational text—, and the second part is an study on the proposals that Cabezón Cámara’s novel carries out to distort the concepts of nation, masculinities and authorship, all they triggered by the José Hernández’s work and which have been osified in Argentina by means of various ways made by the argentinian status quo.
