Roberto Arlt was an Argentine writer born Roberto Godofredo Christophersen Arlt in Buenos Aires on April 2, 1900 His parents were both immigrants his father Karl Arlt was a Prussian from Posen now Poznan in present day Poland and his mother was Ekatherine Iobstraibitzer, a native of Trieste and Italian speaking 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 odd jobs before landing a job on at a local newspaper as clerk at a bookstore, apprentice to a tinsmith, painter, mechanic, welder, manager in a brick factory, and dock worker.His first novel, El juguete rabioso 1926 Mad Toy , was the semi autobiographical story of Silvio, a dropout who goes through a series of adventures trying to be somebody Narrated by Silvio s older self, the novel reflects the energy and chaos of the early 20th century in Buenos Aires 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 typical of Argentine literature as exemplified, perhaps, by the work of Jorge Luis Borges, however innovative his work was in other respects 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.During his lifetime, however, Arlt was best known for his Aguafuertes Etchings , the result of his contributions as a columnist between 1928 and 1942 to the Buenos Aires daily 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 These articles included occasional expos s of public institutions, such as the juvenile justice system Escuela primaria de delincuencia , 26 29 September 1932 or the Public Health System Some of the Aguafuertes were collected in two volumes under the titles Secretos femeninos Aguafuertes in ditas and Tratado de delincuencia Aguafuertes in ditas which were edited by Sergio Olgu n and published by Ediciones 12 and P gina 12 in 1996.Between March and May 1930, Arlt wrote a series of Aguafuertes as a correspondent to El Mundo in Rio de Janeiro In 1935 he spent nearly a year 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.Worn out and exhausted after a lifetime of hardships, he died from a stroke on July 26, 1942 His coffin was lowered from his apartment by an operated crane, an ironic end, considering his bizarre stories.Arlt has been massively influential on Latin American literature, including the 1960s Boom generation of writers such as Gabriel Garc a M rquez Analogues in English literature are those who avoid literary respectability by writing about the poor, the criminal and the mad writers like William Burroughs, Iceberg Slim, and Irvine Welsh Arlt, however, predated all of them He is widely considered to be one of the founders of the modern Argentine novel among those contemporary writers who cla
