Abstract

This book makes the case for the importance of Ros de Olano as a major Spanish and European writer, setting his work in a comparative context, and exploring the originality of his complex and sometimes difficult prose writings. Ros looks beyond both the Romantic fragment and grand narrative, creating sustained miniatures, long, lingering episodes. He considers the expansive giving of form to have been crushed in our time and place. He only departs from these trends when he relishes beautiful absurdity.
