Example text

Nonetheless, his visit to his father’s tomb just before going abroad implies both his imminent geographical distancing from the place of his father’s (symbolic) castration and his choice of a different path. Ernesto decides to migrate to start anew, without the scars generated by the paternal failure, thus rectifying his father’s earlier decision to abandon Spain and capitalist society in favor of living in a marginal region and following traditional patterns of production and consumption. Ernesto’s planned migratory trip will take him back not only to the country in which he was born, but also to mainstream capitalist society.

Ernesto’s separation from his father is particularly painful given that he strongly identifies with him, but also and more crucially, because from Ernesto’s perspective, Mario represents the prevailing symbolic order to which the adolescent needs to be introduced. But that order is experiencing fundamental changes that are rendering Mario’s type of masculinity obsolete. Un lugar also chronicles Mario’s loss of hegemony, which amounts to his symbolic castration. Mario’s vulnerability, produced by his loss of hegemony in Argentine society, inevitably shapes his son’s process of development as it disassociates the dyads father = power, Father = Law, phallus = penis.

Ernesto constructs his autobiographical narrative by alluding to his personal formation and his father’s influence over him during his development. Un lugar follows the structure of a Bildungsroman that typically traces the personal growth of a young male, and also displays the specificity of the Spanish American literary Bildungsroman, which has the functions of seeking social justice and expressing human values as a character develops (Kushigian 19). In Ernesto’s search for social justice, we see that he was inspired by his father’s concern about the underprivileged.
