Localizando la política: subjetividad, publicidad y revolución en tres novelas recientes
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
In the wake of the economic and social crisis, Spanish fiction has looked for ways of reflecting (on) the political. One of the manners has been to attempt to understand how the crisis has affected subjectivity and, more concretely, how the subject navigates the society of the crisis. In this article, I study three recent novels—Alberto Olmos’ Ejército enemigo (2011), Bruno Galindo’s El público (2012) and Javier Moreno’s Acontecimiento (2015)—that try to respond to the present political and social situation. Despite their differences, the three novels carry out an exploration of modern subjectivity, above all in relation to advertising and social media, in relation to politics and the revolution. Among several similarities, I observe that the three novels, together with other recent Spanish fiction, call attention to a false consciousness of the present moment and propose a radical revolt as a possible political solution.
