Storytelling and Drawing through Genres
Alzheimer’s Disease in Spanish Culture
In the last few years, Spanish literature has seen the growing of the interest on the storytelling of Alzheimer. From fiction to diary, from poetry to cinema, a lot of different literary genres and media focused on this cruel, tragic and very common disease. The examples vary from autobiographical story of will-known sick people to the storytelling of writing, in poetic as well as in literary and artistic form, as a therapy. Alzheimer’s disease is much more than a literary theme, writing on Alzheimer is a linguistic challenge because it compels the author to go even further, to the very limits of writing.
