Amusing Ourselves until (Dis)appearing in La invención de Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares

Journal of Critical Studies in Language and Literature , Volume 1, pp 72-78; doi:10.46809/jcsll.v1i4.45

Abstract: La invención de Morel reflect on how the use of technologies could be fascinating and dangerous at the same time; and the way the island seems to be a space of freedom while it is actually a place of prison and death. La invención de Morel presents a utopian situation that transforms into a dystopia. Characters, especially the narrator, project their desires along with the holograms, but they are deceived without realizing about their loss of reality. The novel uses phantasy and science fiction resources to reflect about the way humans self-imprison. This is studied by analogy to the effects of technologies in today's society. In this sense, the novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares is about a menace due to the human preference of imaginary life over real one.
