Literary Narrative

Manuel Longares in conversation with Luis Mateo Díez

Poetics and Narrative

Manuel Longares makes use of a literary story to illustrate his idea of literary narrative, which he defines by contrasting it to journalistic narrative: “journalism uses the facts and literature inventiveness”. In his conversation with Luis Mateo Díez, the writer takes a chronological look back at his work, discussing topics including character description, the city of Madrid as a narrative setting and the search for literary style.
