Escrituras del Yo en la obra de Miguel de Unamuno


Edited By Berit Callsen

Persiguiendo el argumento de una "trascendencia autobiográfica" que subyace en los escritos unamunianos, los ensayos que se reúnen en este libro observan un yo que se escenifica como heterogéneo, diverso y hasta quebrado. Asimismo, enfrentan un yo múltiple que se busca y se explora en perspectiva prospectiva.

Así, el volumen ofrece análisis e indagaciones de un continuo de la escritura del yo en la obra narrativa, ensayística, lírica y dramática de Unamuno y sondea representaciones del sujeto que se extienden hacia direcciones y formas diversas, tocando tanto su lado ético como el estético.

Nictografías unamunianas: de la muerte pensada a medias al miedo mortal poetizado

Abstract: The inexhaustible work of Unamuno contains a series of death-related thoughts. More precisely, it represents a cardinal spanish (and therefore ‘periferic’) 19-century-thanatology, as the philosopher incessently considered the mercilessness of death the cardinal issue of human condition. Unamuno examined death and even created a genuine deaths’ typlogy referring to categories like otherness, the figure of alter ego, and fear. Nevertheless he does this not only in his narrative, but also in his poetry work.     The focus of this essay lies in how unamunian poetry – in fact, the rather neglect­ed part of the spanish philosopher’s work – conceives fear as a dispositif which anticipates and preforms death, and especially how the unamunian rhetoric of fear anticipates and premodules death. As an additional assumption, the essay identifies a specific cronotope within Unamunos hollows, in both a pragmatic and metaphoric way, the pair of fear and death: night. The way the author prefers to move from his philosophy of death to this poetic cronotope is designated as nictographic, and nictographic poetics are considered as an aesthetic of intensified afect.     It is sufficiently known that Unamuno disclaimed reasonable discourses. In this sense, his night-poetry, and more specifically the poems “Vendrá de noche” (1928) and “Es de noche” (1907), seem to be based on a phenomenoloy of night, and readable as pieces of a dislocated manner to aprehend fear and death,...
