Book Description

This book explains Miguel de Unamuno's cultivation of the novel genre from the point of view of the ideas he brought to bear on his practice. It shows that behind Unamuno's fictional experiments there lies a coherent and quasi-philosophical concept of the novelesque genre, indeed of writing itself.
