Fuga y errancia en Mal de época de María Sonia Cristoff

Translated title of the contribution: Fugue and Wandering in María Sonia Cristoff's Mal de época

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article analyzes the representation of wandering in relation to the experience of fugue in the novel Mal de época, by the Argentine writer María Sonia Cristoff, as a way of questioning the politics of everyday modern and postmodern mobility. Throughout an investigation on Albert Dadas -diagnosed with dissociative fugue- and the story of a character involved in an attack, wandering defines the fugues of the characters, on the one hand, as a break with the conditions of control and power of their own contexts; and, on the other, as an atmosphere of dislocation and dissolution of identities that, through waiting and boredom, embody the mood of a crisis and a deterritorializing experience.
