Poder, querer y osar en la investigación literaria

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


“Ethics and aesthetics in literary research” summaries the main
findings in a three-year project on the work of the controversial
Spanish writer Juan Goytisolo. The most astonishing result was the
realization about the temptations and limitations of literary research:
many researchers do not have sufficient knowledge about Goytisolo’s
work to be able to formulate a stand; others do not want to criticize
an author chosen by them because they identify with him in one or
several respects; also, a number of the best critics navigate with great
care in the U.S. academic world, being most conscious of not stepping
beyond the boundary of the “politically correct”.
