A translation of Josefina Ludmer’s article “Literaturas posautónomas,” originally published in Cíberletras.

“Postautonomous Literatures” advances the argument that “all that is cultural and literary is economic, and all that is economic is cultural and literary.” For Ludmer, we live in a world in which “there is no reality opposed to fiction, there is no author, and there is not much sense.” She draws these conclusions from her readings of new Latin American fiction, but I think these readings are applicable to the study of world literature at large today.
