The Promise of Multipolarism
This book has aimed to be an exercise in potentiating, within literary and cultural criticism, the multipolarity promised by the epochal transformations of 1989. It has done this by investigating the Latin American novel's attempts to represent the totality of the world or the intensified interconnection of globalization. It began with the two, connected premises. The first premise led to a valuation of the maladjustment between the world and the work—a call to explore the negativity of this relationship. The second premise led to an appraisal of the historical specificity of post-1989 works, particularly ones from Latin America. The two strands of world and globalization converge in the notion of multipolarism. Many of the arguments that have been put forward in this volume can be synthesized in art: Shibboleth (2007), by Colombian sculptor Doris Salcedo.
