Abstract (La representación mítica del mal en el universo novelesco de Ernesto Sábato)
In this article, I study the myths in the novels of Ernesto Sábato.
With mythocritique and psychocriticism as approaches to carry out my
analysis, I explain the presence of evil through the Gnostic myth of the
blind, the incest and the transgression of the forbidden. The Latin
American writer represents the world under the domination of the exterior
and dark forces that are the Sect, the Oedipus complex and the Prince of
Darkness. The interest of this study lies in the knowledge of evil and its
presence through the myths recreated by the Argentine author.
