Revolution in the Novel/Novel of Revolution


Exploration of Spanish novel from 1962 to 1987, a period of exceptional development highlighting 'radical artifice' including use of parody, multiple narrators, subplots and time schemes, as well as countless self-reflexive devices. Collectively representing a 'revolution in the novel', these works also provide complex and sophisticated commentaries on vexed contemporary questions concerning the direction of Spanish politics and society spanning the years of late Francoism and the transition to democracy, reflecting both 'revolutionary' and 'counter-revolutionary' trends—including the unfinished revolution of women's emancipation addressed through key works by women authors of the period.
