    image & repetition

    To make his horror perfect, Caesar, hemmed about at the foot of a statue by his friends’ impatient knives, discovers among the faces and the blades the face of Marcus Junius Brutus, his ward, perhaps his very son–and so Caesar stops defending himself, and cries out “Et tu, Brute?” Shakespeare and Quevedo record that pathetic cry.

    Fate is partial to repetitions, variations, symmetries. Nineteen centuries later, in the southern part of the province of Buenos Aires, a gaucho is set upon by other gauchos, and as he falls he recognizes a godson of his, and says to him in gentle remonstrance and slow surprise (these words must be heard, not read): “Pero, ché!” He dies, but he does not know that he has died so that a scene can be played out again.

    כדי שאימתו תהיה שלמה, מגלה יוליוס קיסר בין ידידיו, אשר פגיונותיהם חסרי הסבלנות ריתקוהו אל בסיס האנדרטה, את פניו של חניכו, ושמא בנו, מרקוס יוניוס ברוטוס - ושוב אינו מתגונן וצועק: הגם אתה, בני ! שקספיר ופרנסיסקו קוואדו חוזרים על קריאה פאתטית זו.

    הגורל אוהב חזרות, גרסאות, סימטריות. תשע-עשרה מאות לאחר מכן, בדרומו של מחוז בואנוס איירס, מותקף גאוצו אחד על-ידי גאוצוס אחרים. בנופלו הוא מגלה ביניהם את הילד, שהוא היה סנדקו, והוא פונה אליו בטרוניה עדינה ובתדהמה איטית (מלים אלה צריכות להישמע ולא להיקרא): .גם אתה ? הם הורגים אותו, והוא אינו יודע כי מת כדי שתמונה מסויימת תחזור על עצמה

    Para que su horror sea perfecto, César, acosado al pie de la estatua por lo impacientes puñales de sus amigos, descubre entre las caras y los aceros la de Marco Bruto, su protegido, acaso su hijo, y ya no se defiende y exclama: ú también, hijo mío! Shakespeare y Quevedo recogen el patético grito.

    Al destino le agradan las repeticiones, las variantes, las simetrías; diecinueve siglos después, en el sur de la provincia de Buenos Aires, un gaucho es agredido por otros gauchos y, al caer, reconoce a un ahijado suyo y le dice con mansa reconvención y lenta sorpresa (estas palabras hay que oírlas, no leerlas): Pero, che! Lo matan y no sabe que muere para que se repita una escena.

    * a remark on translation:
    La Trama is literally translated as the plot. While its metaphorical connotations are much varied and multiple. In Spanis - Trama approximately means, the over all diverse threads of story that, interactively, weave a narrative.
