Aventuras y desventuras de casiperro del hambre

by Graciela Montes

La literatura latinoamericana se caracteriza por su capacidad para fundir elementos de diversas procedencias, a veces muy alejados entre sí, en formas nuevas y originales. En esta obra, Graciela Montes emplea la fuerza metafórica del realismo mágico para aludir a los hechos más recientes de la historia argentina, y los recursos de la picaresca para contar, no la progresiva degradación moral del pícaro sino la extraordinaria aventura del crecimiento. Este género de tendencia realista, se originó en el siglo XVI y es típico de la literatura en lengua española. El hambre, tal como ocurre en la picaresca, es el tema central que da unidad a la historia. Su protagonista, un perro vagabundo, vive, como el pícaro, varias aventuras que determinan el carácter episódico característico del género. Narra en primera persona y, aunque tiene algunos aspectos humanos, no es el animalito humanizado de ciertos cuentos infantiles ni el estereotipo de las fábulas. Con elementos tomados del estudio del comportamiento animal, la autora lo ha dotado de actitudes y, sobre todo, de un punto de vista que podríamos llamar "perruno". Los primeros meses de su vida transcurren duramente en la búsqueda del alimento. Siendo todavía cachorro, es adoptado como mascota y se convierte en víctima de las picardías de los niños y de las humillaciones de los adultos. La historia tiene un final feliz que no es, sin embargo, el de los cuentos de hadas. Casiperro y sus compañeros de aventuras encuentran la protección de un vagabundo que les asegurará el calor del fuego y compartirá con ellos su sencilla comida. Este personaje marginal, que podría ser el típico protagonista de la picaresca, es, por el contrario, el héroe que salvará a Casiperro y a sus compañeros del hambre y del frío, dándoles nombres que, si bien recuerdan las novelas de caballería, reflejan su identidad y sintetizan su historia.
