This work is born from several contemporary rereadings of Roberto Arlt’s books: El juguete rabioso, Bildungsroman, Künstlerroman, Los siete locos and Los lanzallamas. His Buenos Aires and Spanish “aguafuertes”, and Arlt’s political notes are analyzed taking into account the proximity of the author’s narrative work. It also includes three of his unpublished notes as an opportunity for the reader to observe Roberto Arlt’s originality.
