Abstract

This study seeks to address the ways in which the authors view their activities as sociopolitical commentators. It deduces and examines the authors' presuppositions about their implied readers, the manner in which the events of recent Argentine history are bracketed, and the structural patterns that the authors suggest give meaning to these events. Attention will be paid to the rhetorical strategies employed in these attempts to elaborate a text that elucidates and explains recent events and their suggested meanings. A particular focus will be the ways in which the author or narrator mediates in the text as a voice or character in it and the degree to which narrativization is a primary textural strategy in these writings.-from Author
