  • Charly en el país de las alegorías - Un viaje por las letras de Charly García  - (2013)


The allegory destroys our expectations that the words say what they mean. Although it has been studied in film, art and literature, has rarely been addressed in popular music. The work of Charly García, one of the most important representatives of the history of Argentine and Latin Rock, is an excellent way to understand different ways of expressing ideas through lyrics. Trained in classical music and interested in mythological literature combines old and new, revitalizing the use of this rhetorical strategy of long tradition, reappears in his songs and renewed. When, for example, in 1980 sang defiantly “Canción de Alicia en el país”, it we meant much more than it seemed at first glance, but to understand, had to struggle to decipher. This book tries to dissect the poetry of this allegorist of our times, reaching the axis of your text, find out what their strategy, their secret, why his compositions us wonder, move us and sometimes we are enigmatic.
