APROXIMACIÓ A LA NARRATIVA EXPERIMENTAL POSTFRANQUISTA

Catalan Review (2005), 19, (1), 173–197.

Abstract

In the 1970s, in the midst of the post-Franco cultural space, there arose an experimental narrative current that incorporated into the Catalan literary system new values and referents. A kind of self-reflective writing opened up, based on new theoretical (post-structuralist and telquelista discourse), ideological (rereading Marx and Freud), cultural (opening up to counterculture), and literary models (vindication of such authors as Lautreamont, Sade, Artaud and Mallarmé). Examples include citations from Barthes, Kristeva, Deleuze or Lacan in texts by Josep-Lluís Seguí, Biel Mesquida, Carles Hac Mor and Oriol Pi de Cabanyes, or even the musical and cinematographical references in Quim Monzo’s L’udol del griso al caire de les clavegueres. At the same time marginalized and institutionalized by the critics of the time, this current established forms of engagement with the sociopolitical reality of the day, based not on the mimetism of realist discourse, but rather on the subversion of categories of author, reader, text and literary language.
