Batman en Chile

By Enrique Lihn

To my wisdom, unavailable in English--and unfortunately, it will probably by no means be....


Enrique Lihn, chileno, conocido como uno de los más
importantes poetas latinoamericanos de hoy, había in-
cursionado también en el cuento y el ensayo.
Con Batman en Chile se inaugura en l. a. novela.
El tema es de actualidad: el legendario rey de las his­
torietas viaja a Chile para hacerle un trabajito a la-C.I.A.
Tiene entreveros eróticos con l. a. refrigerada Juana Som- '
mers, el efebo Robin sufre pesadillas con los bombar- .
déos en Vietnam y el héroe se desorienta ante una re­-
volución donde hasta los 'malos' son legales y donde
el poderoso Willie Morgan le debe indicar sus pasos.
La resurrección de l. a. novela de aventuras, con su mar­
co ahora político, y teñida de un humor intencionado y
sutil, perra deleitar a lectores alertas.

from a magazine article--i've copied all textual content that's to be had sooner than the paywall. within the first paragraph, number 1 refers to this e-book and the remainder refers to Lihn's occupation. the second one paragraph under starts discussing the plot....

The checklist may well learn: 1) a Batman sketch made right into a political melodrama; 2) a final minute materialisation of huge socialist utopian modernism; three) a cocktail party within the nation-state honouring the Tarzan actor Johnny Weissmüller; four) an experimental documentary changed into a Western; and, final yet no longer least, five) a piglet walking within the urban centre, wearing army clothes. I admit the connections could appear imprecise, yet by some means those erratic, it appears innocuous and commonly forgotten activities that happened in Chile within the Nineteen Seventies and 80s compose a discontinuous lineage of corrosively ironic engagement with political aesthetics. This a little weird and wonderful selection of 'provisional failures' constitutes a show off of Chile's strange historical past of fragmented paintings stories, choked with neo-Dadaist humour and unorthodox leftist critique.1

The Pop We virtually Left Behind

The look-alike crowd is a stressful scene for the real Batman, who courteously tries[...]
