Sample text

Increasing globalization and the fashion for post­ modernism have dismantled national boundaries and discredited conventional criteria for the creation and definition of personal and collective identity. They have also accelerated the process of erosion and devaluation of the great ideologies of the past. As a result, the status of the authorial voice has been diminished and its power has to some extent been drowned out by the 28 GONZALO NAVAJAS white noise from the many other media widely available in an increasingly diverse cultural environment.

It is not surprising that Baroja’s utopia is an anarchist one. The absolute rejection of all gradualist and reforming measures appears to be the only legitimate solution for his antiheroes. Valle-Inclán’s position was more diverse and complex. The *Sonatas (1902– 05), consisting of four separate segments, revel in the power of aesthetics to soften and embellish the coarseness of a degraded national culture. These are ambiguous narratives that some see as frivolous, influenced as they were by the principles of modernismo, the movement that permeated Spanish and Latin American poetry and literature at the beginning of the century.

Abel Sánchez is Unamuno’s most profound and disturbing work of fiction and one which demonstrates that the novel was for him not a medium for passing away the hours of idleness but a instrument of self-knowledge and a way of shaking the reader from the complacency of conventional thinking. Some of this is still evident in *La tía Tula (1920), inspired by the ­Christian paradox of the Virgin Mother. Tula, who has something of the 36 CARLOS ALEX LONGHURST modern ­feminist in her and has proved to be Unamuno’s most controversial character, eliciting the most diverse reactions even among scholarly critics, rejects the male of the human species as too brutal and materialistic.
