La poética de la muerte, el espacio y el amor en Sobre nupcias y ausencias de Lenito Robinson Bent

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The short story collection Sobre nupcias y ausencia by Lenito Robinson Bent is considered the genesis of the literature of the archipelago of San Andres and Providencia. The axiomatic topics are varied but this study concentrates on death, space, place and love as the actants of a good number of the stories. A dialogue is then established, and thanks to a style where the poetic prose prevails, an anachronic archipelago faithful to its ancestral mores, with atavistic characters determined by the idyllic environment, is rescued. The nostalgic tone and the forever absence of the loved one, of being and not being in the island creates a common place for quite a few of the characters.
