This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the evolution of the radical aesthetics in the novels of Spanish author Juan Goytisolo beginning in the period after the publication of Señas de identidad in 1966. This volume examines the manifestations of the aesthetic principles in some of Goytisolo's works including Reivindicación del conde don Julián, Juan sin tierra, and Makbara. It also describes Goytisolo's attempts to translate social concerns into aesthetic practice in his post–1966 works.
