Appearance and Disappearance of the Love Path in Jaime Saenz's Work: Analysis of a Chapter of Felipe Delgado

Camilo Gil Ostria


This essay proposes a close reading of chapter VIII of the second part of Felipe Delgado, a novel by Jaime Saenz. In this chapter, which narrates Felipe's birthday, the projection process by which the protagonist dominates his world is staged; at the same time, Ramona (and the intruder into whom she will transexualize) will neutralize that dominant gaze. Comparing the chapter with Magritte's series The Lovers and Barthes's A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments, the importance of the amorous path will be brought to the fore in this novel.
