The novel Desarticulaciones (2010) by Sylvia Molloy presents the theme of disease that often refers to the idea of decomposition and death. In this way, the power expresses an automatic repudiation of the sick as opposed to the healthy, since the latter must represent and spread the need for progress and social welfare. The aforementioned book centers its story on the disarticulation of a mind, a memory, a past, a life. Everything is simple and devastating: every day a woman who writes, reads and lives in New York visits a very close friend who has Alzheimer. Through the narration of these encounters, a description of the disease that attacks the very essence of the individual is also developed, also embracing how it gradually removes memory as the constitutive instance of identity. In this book, Sylvia Molloy narrates the effects of the passage of time caused by this condition and she does it through a profound and wise story.

Abstract

The novel Desarticulaciones (2010) by Sylvia Molloy presents the theme of disease that often refers to the idea of decomposition and death. In this way, the power expresses an automatic repudiation of the sick as opposed to the healthy, since the latter must represent and spread the need for progress and social welfare. The aforementioned book centers its story on the disarticulation of a mind, a memory, a past, a life. Everything is simple and devastating: every day a woman who writes, reads and lives in New York visits a very close friend who has Alzheimer. Through the narration of these encounters, a description of the disease that attacks the very essence of the individual is also developed, also embracing how it gradually removes memory as the constitutive instance of identity. In this book, Sylvia Molloy narrates the effects of the passage of time caused by this condition and she does it through a profound and wise story.
