Cuarteles de Invierno: The Silent Subversion of Unsung Tangos
To date, critics have not analyzed the titles of the tangos mentioned in Osvaldo Soriano’s novel Cuarteles de Invierno. Since the main character is a tango singer who has been invited to perform for a festival sponsored by the military, the tangos are important because the singer never gets a chance to sing. The silence requires a cultural knowledge of the tangos in order to infer a more subtle form of subversion to counter the military regime’s mandates. This article analyzes the lyrics to the tangos mentioned.
