Image of Time
Prosa del observatorio and other Writings by Cortázar
Cortázar’s book, Prosa del observatorio, is based on images, as shown by the photographies included in the text. It is a work written to decipher a poetics: from the image of Moebius’s ring, to the eels – that create a dynamic parallelism – or mixing scientific excerpts with extremely poetical sentences. The images allow a definition of the hole in the network of time, a ‘between’ described as the possibility of attacking the flanks of normalcy and the establishment, to proclaim revolution and rebelliousness.
