QUEZADA MACCHIAVELLO, Óscar. The impossible Client (History of a Ressentment). Tóp. Sem [online]. 2017, n.37, pp.125-146. ISSN 2594-0619.

In the short story “Los Merengues” the sense is determined retrospectively. The short story is oriented to the conjunction-consumption of some candy, an objective that the main character does not come to achieve. The affective-cognitive incompetency of the protagonist boy is presupposed, this incompetency undervalues the practical means the boy has: the money. His program of appropriation clashes against the counterprogram of conservation of disjunction played by the opponent, this counterprogram finally wins. The contract is denied, the conflict prevails. The resulting frustration arise deception and malcontent, along with the project of construction of another objective: revenge. Upon the passional scheme of rage, this analysis explores the dimensions of competence, the structures of interaction, the phe­nomena of ascending and descending tensivity, the valences of values and the construction of bodies.

Keywords : iconization; semi-symbolic correlations; aesthetic capture; values and valences; affective and cognitive incompetence.
