The connections with Colombia, often seen as an espacio vedado by the international community, are clear. Carlos Vicente, who plays the part of an irreproachable husband and father with strict standards that he seeks to impose on others, has an affair with his sister-in-law, Sofi, and is sexually jealous of his daughter, Agustina.
The link between family and nation is reinforced by the medical terminology used by several historians to characterize the national psyche perceived as unhinged by self-delusion. This sacred act, performed in secret by brother and sister, provides an explicitly incestuous counterpoint to the profane liaison between Carlos Vicente and Sofi who are related only through marriage.
The purpose of the ritual is twofold: to celebrate the power that the photographs confer and to resist the temptation to use this power which rather like the phallus on the linguistic level must remain veiled to preserve its symbolic function.
In the rarefied atmosphere of these ceremonies, the photographs that act as profane ciphers of marital infidelity are transmuted into the symbols of the sacred. Initially tokens of lies and deception, they now represent the secret bond between brother and sister whose ceremonies centre on their illicit possession of dangerous evidence. Eugenia is linked to the phallus and to the fallacious which are related as we will see below : she must be veiled in order to function. She draws a veil over sexuality, both its natural expression when Agustina reaches pubescence and Aminta becomes pregnant and its transgressive expression when her husband has an affair with her sister, Sofi.
The principles of patriarchy extend from social hierarchies to linguistic structures. The phallus allegedly anchors language, being a positive value standing for clarity and precision while anything not shaped by the phallus is defined as chaotic, fragmented, negative or non-existent Moi, and Minsky, In her use of capitalization for these quasi-psychoanalytical terms, Restrepo may be parodying a psychoanalytical procedure described by Rashkin:.

She is mocking the terminology of psychoanalysis and undermining a male master discourse. Minsky points out that the phallus is bogus and that identities based on it are false but, none the less, it structures the world and underpins the symbolic function of language. For Lacan, the acceptance of patriarchal language and therefore of male power is the indispensable condition for the sanity of both sexes: without the symbolic there can be no human subjectivity, only psychosis Derrida, Derrida makes a related point:.
Here Agustina is silent; elsewhere she alternates between obsessive linguistic precision and playful linguistic free-wheeling. Similarly she fears that if the leper —against whom her father locks the doors at night— knows her name, her unique sign of identity, he will gain control over her . She both upholds the Law of the Father whose meaning is clear and unambiguous and disrupts that law through her playful reconfigurations. As Bowie points out, Lacan and Freud saw words as signifying knots, rich in associations Bowie, Significantly, Rousseau focuses on the modern health club which promotes itself as one of the leading locales of health and therefore of pleasure and happiness.
Far from being a locale of life enhancement, the health club in Delirio transmutes into a torture chamber, the setting for violent death as Dolores falls victim to sadomasochism [—96]. The destructiveness of male patriarchal hysteria can be counterpointed to the creative female hysteria represented by Agustina. Critics such as Trinh. Minh-ha have pointed to silence as a will to say or a will to unsay, as a kind of language that has barely been explored Castillo, Elsewhere, in Cinders , Derrida explores the metaphorical associations of fire, conflagration, heat; embers, ash, residue.
On one occasion, Agustina burns herself, significantly at a place her tongue that is associated with language . The narrative of the family crisis is told in three separate but overlapping sections. She blames Joaco instead, resorting to blatant make-believe, in which her son is a willing participant, to preserve the illusion of a stable marriage [—]. This scene is one of Biblical intensity replete with towering rage, uncontrolled violence, unrestrained revenge, paternal wrath reduced to paternal humiliation, and maternal power harnessed to familial preservation.
It deserves multiple narrations and varying perspectives. He is also given to apparent naivety, asking Sofi whether Eugenia actually believed that Joaco had taken the photographs . At other times, far from slowing down the narrative with his superfluous questions, he seeks to curtail digression  and urges Sofi to continue with her account . But even the narrators, who were also first-hand witnesses, cannot offer a definitive version of events. Sofi, for example, first suggests that Eugenia was aware of the affair all along and was only concerned to keep it secret.
It is the women, bordering on hysteria, who demonstrate superior understanding to the rational male. Both women view their narratives as creative enterprises that cannot be verified by documentary evidence. She represents what the others seek —in vain— to exclude: the other of knowledge and the origins of language. As Felman states, madness is a kind of rhythm that is unpredictable, unsayable, but is none the less fundamentally narratable as the story of the slippage of a reading between the excessive fullness and the excessive emptiness of meaning Felman, This episode is significant because it shows Agustina getting to grips at last with the defining episode of her family history.
The text opens with an extraordinary situation: when Aguilar returns from a few days away visiting his children by his first wife, Marta Elena, he receives a telephone call advising him that Agustina is staying at an hotel. Agustina tells her story —or, rather, stages it, performs it, exposes it to interpretation and reconstruction. Delirio is an inconsistent text in its depiction of madness which resonates negatively as an allegory of national violence and discord but positively to the extent that it liberates Agustina from the patriarchal structures of artifice.
It is ultimately an ambivalent text that engages with the pasts of both Agustina and of Colombia while relinquishing any pretension to singular meaning and conclusion —a typically female response to the violent male megalomania unleashed within the family and nation. Belsey 62 notes that the phallus can only serve as a signifier when it is veiled.
The photographs taken by Carlos Vicente may be seen as phallic: his gaze and control are veiled but implicit in the poses adopted by Sofi.

The dramatic narration of the family crisis by Agustina and Sofi has a Faulknerian quality, recalling the imaginative reconstructions of history that dominate Absalom, Absalom! Faulkner, , the story of the South, just as Delirio is the story of Colombia, whose recounting seems in some instances, such as the Agustina-Sofi reconstruction, to be as much its subject as the story itself.
More recently, the work has been reinterpreted with the emphasis on the madness of the protagonist, Arturo Cova, and the implications of his demise on the well-being of the Colombian body politic.
