NOTES TOWARD A PAMPHLET by Sergio Chejfec

125 x 205mm, 48 pages, black and white printed, saddle stitched, 2020

Translated by Whitney DeVos

Argentine poet Samich moves from the provinces to the outskirts of Buenos Aires and decides to turn his life into a work of art. Fumbling through a world constructed of intuitions and beliefs, he has scant preparation and few firm ideas about how to do this. Nonetheless, he develops a cult following. Fiction writer and essayist Sergio Chejfec offers a series of numbered notes as an outline of Samich’s thinking-in-process, investigating the pamphlet form as a “megaphone” for the dissemination of “views” bound by “a situation of existence” of a poet who “aspired to a voice permanently lowered.” As if to say: by means of the pamphlet, the biography becomes the work.
