The Novelistic Development of Javier Marias
Author: Alexis Grohmann
Javier Marías is a major contemporary Spanish novelist who has enjoyed remarkable international success and recognition. He is a writer who has undergone a singular and clearly discernible novelistic evolution and has forged a very distinctive style of his own. It is this formal development that this book traces through a study of his works from Los dominios del lobo (1971) to Negra espalda del tiempo (1998). With the help of a wide range of 20th-century literary theories and criticism, it strives to show that in order to escape realism and Spanishness and to make his way into literature, Marías forges an intricate style which progressively develops and matures, and which creates highly suggestive and elaborate imaginative worlds, a literature with a particular ontology, ultimately capable of inventing reality. This book is the first full-length study of Javier Marías's work to be published so far and serves both as an introduction to, and a close examination of, the work of a major European writer.
(Javier Marías, Antonio Muñoz Molina y Rosa Montero)
Author: Alexis Grohmann
En años relativamente recientes, el género de la novela ha ido experimentando cambios notables, abanderados por la realidad y su invasión del territorio de la ficción. En el presente estudio exhaustivo de tres obras españolas (de Javier Marías, Antonio Muñoz Molina y Rosa Montero), situadas en un amplio contexto literario europeo, Alexis Grohmann propone como clave de esas transformaciones el concepto de la digresión. La porosidad o errancia genérica de las obras, su divagación argumental o ausencia de trama, su digresividad estilística y la errabundia de los procesos de creación, además del disperso y heterogéneo material con el que se trabaja, hacen que la digresión se perfile no tanto como un recurso o simple figura retórica, cuanto como una verdadera Weltanschauung, una manera de contemplar el mundo.
