Reivindicación del conde don Julián

(p.81) Chapter Three Reivindicación del conde don Julián
Juan Goytisolo and the Poetics of Contagion
Liverpool University Press

This chapter analyses Juan Goytisolo's novel Reivindicación del conde don Julián. It examines the novel's metafictional nature, its self–conscious elements, and its satiric and parodic attack on the literary tradition of Spain. It highlights the constant split between the referential and the textual levels in this novel and suggests that their relationship is one of tension and difference rather than complementarity. This chapter also contends that the presence of the mimetic elements in this novel only served to be deconstructed in order to draw attention to the linguistic level.

Keywords:   Reivindicación del conde don Julián, metafictional nature, self–conscious elements, literary tradition, Spain, referential level, textual level, mimetic elements
