Abstract / Description of output

Javier Marías continues to strive to reach the place were stories no longer impose their tyranny. This pursuit of freedom is given shape in the present volume by way of a series of scholarly essays marking the half-century that has elapsed since the publication of his first novel. A comprehensive selection of critical perspectives revitalizes existing lines of inquiry through profoundly novel approaches. Established scholarly thinking is given renewed worth and new paths are cleared and explored. A series of indispensable perspectives are used to analyse his work in novel ways, ranging from ambiguity and uncertainty to ethics and responsibility, through vision and hermeneutics, whilst hitherto ignored extra-literary aspects, such as his teaching and editorial work, allow a comprehensive and nuanced picture to emerge.
