This collection of essays looks at the most recent work of Juan Goytisolo from a variety of perspectives and critical stances. The contributors, all specialists in the work of the Spanish author, employ theories of intertextuality, postmodernist irony, queer ethics and even the esoteric science of Huruinsm to uncover the complexities of Goytisolo's creative practice, in particular his radical blurring of the generic boundaries between fiction, autobiography and literary criticism. Such challenging of genre conventions is seen as both integral to the author's own questioning of his identity as an expression of his radical dissidence and essential to the response his work evokes in the reader. Life and writing, autobiography and inction, constitute the interconnecting poles of Goytisolo's artistic universe. The essays included in this volume explore the varying patterns of conin‚uence of these twin strands in the writer's later work as a whole, but particularly in novels such as altIgLas semanas del jardin (1997) and altIgCarajicomedia (2000). The essays are set in context by a contribution from Juan Goytisolo himself in which he sums up his philosophy of life and writing as a pursuit of 'non-prointable knowledge'.qSince the 1980s, both the autobiographical genre and Goytisoloa#39;s versions of it have attracted increasing attention.2 As part of ... subject to different rules of verificationa#39;.3 Paul de Man commences his essay positing the traditional view that autobiography a#39;seems to depend on actual ...
