Roberto Arlt — was an Argentine writer. His parents were both immigrants: German was the language commonly used at their home. His relationship with his father was stressful, as Karl Arlt was a very severe and austere man, by Arlt’s own account.

The memory of his oppressive father would appear in several of his writings. For example, Remo Erdosain a character at least partially based on Arlt’s own life often recalls his abusive father and how little if any support he would give him.

After being expelled from school at the age of eight, Arlt became an autodidact and worked at all sorts of different aguatuertes jobs before landing a job on at a local newspaper: His first novel, El aguafyertes rabioso ” Mad Toy “was the semi-autobiographical story of Silvio, a dropout who goes through a series of adventures trying to atlt “somebody.

The narrator’s literary and sometimes poetic language contrasts sharply with the street-level slang of Mad Toy ‘s many colorful characters. Arlt’s second novel, the popular Los siete locos The Seven Madmen was rough, brutal, colloquial and surreal, a complete break from the polite, middle-class literature more typical of Argentine literature.

Los lanzallamas The Flame-Throwers was the sequel, and these two novels together are thought by many to be his greatest work.

What followed were a series of short stories and plays in which Arlt pursued his vision of bizarre, half-mad, alienated characters pursuing insane quests in a landscape of urban chaos. In he published El amor brujo. During his lifetime, however, Arlt was best known for his “Aguafuertes” “Etchings”the result of his contributions as a columnist – between and – to the Buenos Aires daily xguafuertes El Mundo “.

Arlt used these columns to comment, in his characteristically forthright and unpretentious style, on the peculiarities, hypocrisies, strangeness and beauty of everyday life in Argentina’s capital. Some of the “Aguafuertes” were collected in two volumes under the titles Secretos femeninos.

In he spent nearly a aguafkertes writing as he traveled throughout Spain and North Africa, on the eve of the Spanish Civil War. At the time of his death, Arlt was hoping to be sent to the United States as a correspondent.
