About this item

This book examines a number of specific language-related aspects in Mar&’i&as’ prose which affect, and arguably define, the all-pervasive uncertainty of his plots in order to explore its origin and meaning. It was born mainly out of the following questions: How does he create the underlying ambiguity that seems to be part of all his novels’ plots?& Is this ambiguity relevant for his poetics? What is its significance? Also characteristic of Mar&’i&as is his insertions of foreign elements--cultural references, foreign terms, phrases--in his Spanish texts. A close textual analysis emerges as the most appropriate method to understand its core and uniqueness. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
