In his texts, Felix Bruzzone transforms predictable questions (“How to be a writer, son-of-disappeared-parents?” or “How to write coming from a filiation that is full of holes?”), into programmatic ones (“How to establish a personal literature?” or “How to project oneself into a literary future that is unpredictable but wanted?”), which is to say that, starting with an identity framed by social discourse that is both omnipresent and normative, the author will suggest a succession of transgressions, shifts, and variations which, instead of extending the corpus of the “literature of the disappeared,” will subvert and transform it into something else. The article analyzes the literary beginnings of the author (two books published in the same year: 76 and Los Topos), as being examples of resistance and a method of resilience, not in the face of wounded memories but through the detachment afforded by a creative space. This reclaiming, which endeavors to “imagine a future” for literature in a period where its death has incessantly been proclaimed, is part of a current trend (that of a “post-apocalyptic" or “post-millenarian” multiform literature) that is being alluded to in the conclusion.
