Overview
En El astillero Onetti se acerca a un equilibrio casi perfecto, a una econom a art stica que resulta algo milagrosa.
Mario Benedetti

Regresar a la alucinada ciudad de Santa Mar a, emplearse en el astillero de Petrus y enamorar a la hija de ste es para Larsen la ltima oportunidad de encontrar un sentido. Sin embargo, muy pronto dicha tentativa se convierte en una rigurosa farsa: no hay nada que hacer en un astillero paralizado y en ruinas, ni es posible amar voluntariamente. A pesar de que la vida lo excluye, Larsen contin a impert rrito en su papel, como si no quisiera mirar a la cara a un mundo en v as de extinci n, o tal vez porque fingir es la nica salida posible contra la locura.
Julio Cort zar dijo sobre Juan Carlos Onetti:
El m s grande novelista latinoamericano.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"In The Shipyard, Onetti comes close to an almost perfect equilibrium, to an artistic economy that seems rather miraculous." -Mario Benedetti
Returning to the dreamed-of city of Santa Mar a, getting a job in Petrus's shipyard, and winning the heart of Petrus's daughter is, for Larsen, the last opportunity to find his purpose. However, the attempt soon becomes a meticulous farse: there is nothing to do in a stagnant, ruined shipyard, nor is it possible to will oneself to love. Even though life precludes it, Larsen continues undaunted in his role, as though he doesn't want to look at the reality of a world en route to extinction, or perhaps because pretending is the only possible way out of madness.

Julio Cort zar said about Juan Carlos Onetti: "the greatest Latin American novelist."
