abstract

Specialised critics have dealt extensively with the influence that Mikhail Bakhtin had on Sergio Pitol through the concept of carnival. They have neglected, however, the aesthetic debt that the Mexican writer owes to Miguel de Cervantes. This kind of influence can be seen not only in the quixotic topics recreated in Pitol’s production but also in his metafictional conception. This article offers an approach to the narrative series called “Tríptico del carnaval” – perhaps the most popular by Pitol – and explains some of Cervantes’s metafictional strategies, such as the breaking of the fourth wall, autobiographical fiction, and parodic intertextuality.
