Abstract

Through the analysis of a few theoretical and literary texts by J.M. Caballero Bonald, this article highlights the centrality of artistic ‘deformation’ in the author’s poetical conception and, at the same time, his rejection of any kind of mimetic art. This ‘deformation’ – which, upon re-working reality, allows the artist to reveal reality’s hidden face – in Caballero Bonald’s view is the true purpose of literature. Closely linked to it are painting (especially Picasso’s Cubism), the surrealist imagination and baroque aesthetics, all fundamental to his literary opus, which is analysed in this essay without losing sight of concepts such as Labyrinth, Otherness, and Hermeticism, also of great importance in casting light upon Caballero Bonald’s works.

Keywords
