By focusing on the Iberian Peninsula as an interliterary community, and taking into consideration the points of confluence and friction among its literary traditions, this chapter reflects on the development of a shared system, one which does not fail to recognise each Iberian historical identity. The establishment of this network will allow us to determine or question the links between them, their shared or individual signals as well as the projection of internal and external signs of identity. Recognising it, it should be possible to establish the network’s validity, and therefore, its diachronic verification or its transitory nature according to certain synchronous criteria.
Interliterariness. Polyphony. Centripetal and centrifugal movements. Vertical and horizontal historiography.
