This article proposes a reading of the novel Fuerzas especiales, by Diamela Eltit, which configures a visual rethoric or from the written letter in transit towards image, from a Rancierian reading of the political. On this basis, two objectives are sought: first, articulating a reading around the notions of politics, considering that every crossover between writing, media, images and devices implies clash and friction, which always bring other cultural and political tensions; the second, analyzing the variants that enable talking about a performance, scene and image rethoric.
