abstract

What we know about the horizon of possibilities in the writers’ discourse is largely influenced by two relevant scholars studies who defined literature as a field in which many pressures converge. The purpose of this paper is to analyse the aims and pressures that have Harkaitz Cano has to cope with when writing about the Basque context. In the aforementioned discussion I thoroughly identify different cycles of literary recreation by taking into consideration three essential stages: first, reflections from a novel’s main figure, secondly, an essay on artist and character building and finally, conversions based on metaliterature. To conclude, the single most striking observation to emerge from the analysis might be the correlation between the artist’s necessity and impossibility to represent reality around him.

Keywords: Metaliterature. Basque Studies. Sociology. Literary field.
