Tul’si (Tuesday) Bhambry’s essay examines Gombrowicz’s model of exilic authorship as presented in Trans-Atlantyk, his first work of fiction written in Argentina. Reading the allegorical constellations of characters within Trans-Atlantyk alongside Maurice Blanchot’s reflections on the role of silence in the writing process, Bhambry argues that for Gombrowicz, the writer not only must negotiate the opposing demands of creativity and control, but he must also confront silence. Bhambry’s discussion of the interrelated problems of subjectivity and authorship contributes to current debates on artistic explorations of creativity, literary self-reflexivity, and twentieth-century writers’ responses to cultural and theoretical representations of authorship.
