Abstract [en]

In this essay my purpose is to rehearse a reading of María Negroni's Elegía Joseph Cornell as a dissenting cultural product. My argument will be that Negroni's text sets in motion a discussion of the center of literary meaning and value. Such discussion is enacted by taking the textual interpretation beyond the realm of the written word, integrating visual images as well as formal transgressions on the page, thus turning the book into a hybrid assemblage or aesthetic device. In this manner, Elegía… opens up a marginal space that contests textual experience. I will try to answer the following question: In what manner does the convergence of visuality and agency in Elegía… challenge the center of literary meaning and value? Finally, I will conclude that Elegía…'s dissenting quality makes it a paradigmatic cultural product produced in the realm of time-space concretion, where the continual rearrangements of meaning and value call for new vocabularies to trace the effects of the politics of contemporary literature.
