Construir al enemigo

Piezas que nacieron de un encargo o del puro divertimento donde Umberto Eco habla de los temas más variados, paseando con desenvoltura desde l. a. literatura a los angeles política o l. a. astronomía, y donde cada escrito se convierte en una pequeña lección para el que lo lee.

El libro arranca con el texto titulado «Construir al enemigo», donde se insiste en las bondades de tener siempre a mano a un rival en quien descargar nuestras debilidades o faltas y, si ese rival no existe, pues habrá que crearlo. Le siguen otros textos que cabalgan de Dan Brown a Barak Obama y Angela Merkel, y una espléndida pieza que aborda el tema de Wikileaks, invitándonos a reflexionar sobre el poder del silencio en una sociedad donde el escándalo es moneda corriente.

Mary Talence’s account of her new life is studded with references to institutional, popular, and literary texts. ”49 What sustains her sense of being an Aboriginal subject is her friendship with a young Aboriginal woman, Dot, who works as a domestic servant in the home of a local family. Dot introduces Mary to an alternative system of textuality, comprising stories about the Aboriginal children removed from their families and sent to orphanages, and words from the Wiradjuri language, that of the clan to which both Dot and Mary belong.

Despite the novel’s advocacy of reciprocity and mutual respect between Indigenous and non-Indigenous New Zealanders, there are moments when Orwin’s construction of relations between Maori and Pakeha falls back into quasi-colonial modes of representation. The cave paintings that Hamish discovers at the beginning of the narrative show a sequence of events where Pouakai attacks a yellow-haired figure, who traps and kills the eagle with the assistance of his companions. ”65 Such a claim to the incorporation of Pakeha figures into Maori textuality comes uncomfortably close to indigenizing the non-Indigenous, thereby situating imperialism within an amelioristic and deterministic schema.
