Abstract

This project aims to analyze the role played by the figure of the writer in two novels of the Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño (Estrella Distante, 1996, and Los Detectives Salvajes, 1998) and in two books of the Spanish author Enrique Vila-Matas (El mal de Montano , 2002, and Doctor Pasavento, 2005). It attempts to observe the importance of the profile of this type of character as regards the traces of autobiography and the essayistic tone which mark the stories of these two writers. In order to do that that, it discusses the possible relation between their poetics and the «autofiction», and what the contours of the critical portrait of the literary field developed within their fictions are.
