          Abstract

          Resumen El libro de mis primos (1969), novela de Cristina Peri Rossi (Montevideo, 1941), se construye alrededor de una familia regida por un sistema jerárquico, autoritario y violento que, hacia el final, es destruido por “los primos”, esto es, los niños de la familia. Ellos son quienes tiran abajo la casa de sus antepasados, en un sentido tanto literal como simbólico. A la caída del orden familiar le sigue la caída de un Estado represivo, por lo que ambos órdenes colapsan de modo simultáneo. De esta forma, al mismo tiempo son demolidas dos instituciones definidas por la opresión y el autoritarismo. En este artículo nos interesa explorar los cruces entre ambas esferas, familiar y política, y para ello, estableceremos un diálogo con la situación política y social uruguaya -que será leída dentro del panorama revolucionario latinoamericano-, en el momento de publicación de la novela. Esto es, un momento de marcada agitación y efervescencia política, motivada, sobre todo, por el triunfo de la Revolución cubana, la emergencia de movimientos sociales locales y globales -condensados particularmente en 1968-, y la amenaza cercana de los golpes de Estado llevados a cabo en el Cono Sur, a lo largo de los años setenta.

          Translated abstract

          Abstract El libro de mis primos (1969), novel by Cristina Peri Rossi (Montevideo, 1941), is built around a family governed by a hierarchical, authoritarian and violent system which towards the end is destroyed by “the cousins”, the children of the family. They are the ones who tear down the house of their ancestors, in a literal and symbolic sense. The fall of the family order is followed by the fall of a repressive state, so that both orders collapse simultaneously. In this way, at the same time, two oppressive and authoritarian institutions are demolished. In this article we are interested in exploring the intersections between both spheres, family and political, and for this, we will establish a dialogue with the Uruguayan political and social situation -which will be read within the Latin American revolutionary panorama-, at the time of publication of the novel. This is a moment of marked political agitation and effervescence, motivated, above all, by the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, the emergence of local and global social movements -particularly condensed in 1968-, and the near threat of the military dictatorships carried out in the Southern Cone, throughout the seventies.
