El tema de la ficci#65533;n y la vida es una constante que, desde tiempos remotos, aparece en la literatura. Pero acaso en ning#65533;n otro autor moderno aparezca con tanta fuerza y originalidad como en las novelas y los cuentos de Juan Carlos Onetti, una obra que, sin exagerar demasiado, podr#65533;amos decir est#65533; casi #65533;ntegramente concebida para mostrar la sutil y frondosa manera como los seres humanos hemos venido construyendo una vida paralela, de palabras e im#65533;genes tan mentirosas como persuasivas, donde ir a refugiarnos para escapar de los desastres y limitaciones que a nuestra libertad y a nuestros sue#65533;os opone la vida tal como es. B#65533;sicamente lo que yo hago es investigar la manera en la que Onetti utiliz#65533; la ficci#65533;n como un mundo alternativo. La respuesta a la derrota cotidiana es la imaginaci#65533;n: huir hacia un mundo de fantas#65533;a. Es decir, aquella operaci#65533;n de donde naci#65533; la literatura, por la que existe la literatura y por eso el t#65533;tulo del ensayo. MARIO VARGAS LLOSA ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The subject of fiction and life is a constant that, since distant times, has been expressed through literature. Yet in the work of no other modern author does it have the force and inventiveness as it does in the short stories of Juan Carlos Onetti. It is not an exaggeration to say that Onetti's work is almost entirely conceived to show the subtle and rich way in which human beings have built a parallel existence--made up of words and images as unreal as they are persuasive--to take refuge in when we want to escape the tragedies and limitations that real life imposes upon our freedom and dreams. What I do, basically, is examine how Onetti used fiction to create an alternate reality --a reality in which the answer to our daily defeats is fleeing to a fantasy world. In other words, the mechanism that bore literature--that gives it a reason to exist--and, therefore, gives title to this essay. MARIO VARGAS LLOSA
