abstract

This paper will focus on the reiterated presence of the notion of ‘distance’ in Samanta Schweblin’s three collections of short stories (El núcleo del disturbio, 2007; Pájaros en la boca, 2009; Siete casas vacías, 2015). Such distance seems to be represented in different ways and from diverse perspectives, as Schweblin’s characters experience the distance from other family members, the distance between health and sickness, and between reality and imagination. The paper will argue that there is a significant difference between Schweblin’s first and last stories, and that such difference is related precisely to the representation of distance, which is featured through discursive modalities in which the depiction of space and its objects has a specific function.
