Supplementary (Re)meanings of Pain in Nefando, by Mónica Ojeda

Ana Belén Pérez Barreiro

Abstract


This article addresses the novel Nefando, by Mónica Ojeda, based on the experience of pain as a supplement, from the theoretical paradigm of Jacques Derrida, since its enunciation functions as a sign of a sign, which does not properly represent affect, rather, it generates a false representative that makes the sign itself present only by its absence. Consequently, the enunciation of affect is articulated as difference insofar as it configures a series of possible disseminated and deferred meanings that put into play the limits of meaning by pointing out its original lack. Thus, the (re)signification of pain makes the production of an original discourse impossible, since it produces other modes of signification that call into question the fixity of the discourse and show the de-centering of the textual structure.
