Abstract:

The Latin American vanguards practiced humor not as an attitude but as a strategy with different purposes, all linked with the new concept of the role of aesthetics in modern society. Satiric or black humor is directed against the literary establishment. Auto-ironic play with the supposed values of modernity is used both to question humor as a characteristic of modern times and to neglect the traditional modes of signifying. Finally the ,,;conceptual humorism" appoints to a new aesthetic experience of absurdity and liberation from bourgeois rationality manifest in the works of the Argentine writer and philosopher Macedonio Fernández and the Chilean novelist Juan Emar.
