Overview

Delibes (b. 1920) is widely characterized as a novelist of authenticity by both his fans and his detractors. Boucher (modern languages and literatures, Boise State U., Idaho) sets out to discover what that means, and whether it is true. Her introduction investigating the question of authenticity itself pivots on Heidegger. Then she discusses existential inauthority as exemplified by Carmen's idle talk in Cinco horas con Mario, five hours with a lady in red in Senora de rojo sobre fondo gris as a rewriting and reversal of Cinco horas, and Eugenio's idle writing in Cartas de amor de un sexagenario voluptuoso. The quotations are in Spanish with English translation. The text is double spaced. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
