GOYTISOLO SPEAKS AT UIC
an Anemic Reading of Spanish Literature," a lecture by world-renowned
Spanish novelist Juan Goytisolo.
Goytisolo is considered one of five major Spanish writers today. His
writing, which defies traditional political and sexual ideas, made him
an instant target for Spain's Franco regime and led to his voluntary
exile from Spain in 1960.
His latest book
is entitled "Carajicomedia" and delves further into the idea of same-sex
sexuality, boldly challenging the religious establishment. Notable in
Goytisolo's works is his progressive self-outing since writing a thinly
disguised autobiographical novel in 1970.
critically acclaimed works include: "Marks of Identity," "Count Julian,"
and "John the Landless."
