Abstract

En un contexto que despotricaba contra la influencia de autores interpretativos, la reciente prominencia de autores literarios que son maestros de escritura creativa podría haber parecido improbable. Este trabajo propone cierta explicación de la fusion entre la teoría y la práctica, y considera que ubicar el studio de la escritura en la academia ha afectado las formas breves, dando lugar a historias de tipo más mimético, menos diegético, y a ciertas modas de estilo narrativo más relacionadas al drama y al cine. La presente discusión considera la moda de la segunda persona narrativa en el taller de escritura —analizando un cuento de Lorrie Moore—, investiga influencias fílmicas —incluyendo las teorías de montaje de Sergei Eisenstein— y compara dos versiones de un cuento de Raymond Carver.

[The new prominence of authors teaching Creative Writing in the academy might have seemed unlikely given a critical context that railed against the influence of authors in interpretation. This discussion suggests reasons for an unlikely coalescence between theory and practice, and considers how situating the study of writing within the academy might have affected the short form, giving rise to more mimetic, less diegetic types of story and certain fashions in narrative style, ones often related to drama and film. The discussion considers the workshop vogue for the second person narrative, examining a story by Lorrie Moore; it investigates filmic influences including Sergei Eisenstein’s theories of montage; and compares two versions of a story by Raymond Carver story.]
