Resumen

Este artículo se propone analizar las traducciones de Paul Bowles como un espacio de choque o de encuentro de culturas mayores y menores. Esas traducciones son el resultado de su prolongada y bien conocida estadía en Tánger. Se basan en los relatos de sus amigos marroquíes. Estas no son en absoluto traducciones ortodoxas. El presente artículo busca responder una serie de preguntas para demostrarlo: ¿Cuál es el texto fuente? ¿Quién es el autor? ¿A qué literatura corresponde el manuscrito redactado en magrebí? La reescritura que hace Bowles de los relatos contados por sus amigos marroquíes tiene tantos defensores como detractores. Revelan la identidad de Bowles en múltiples frentes, incluidas la sexualidad y la nacionalidad. Pero a la vez son políticos en cuanto revelan que las traducciones pueden estar en el centro de encuentros asimétricos entre personas y culturas.
