Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In Abel Sánchez, Unamuno provides a timeless story whose protagonists become the representatives of the weaknesses of the entire humanity. Although the style is more realistic with respect to the other unamunian levels, the work presents all the features that characterize the author's novel production. In the first place, Abel Sánchez lacks specific chronological and geographical indications, which allows the work to be brought closer to these mythical narratives located in a "time without time". Secondly, the tense vital relationship between Joaquín Monegro and Abel Sánchez is transmitted to the reader through the superposition of different narrative planes: the prologue of the author written in the first person, the interventions of the omniscient narrator in the third person, the dialogues between the characters, the fragments of a Confession allegedly written by Joaquin. These elements rarely occupy an independent chapter and their distribution in the novel is irregular. The result is the alternation of perspectives that contributes to the concretization of the atmosphere of tragedy and reverie that tarnishes the work. This article aims to analyze the narrative techniques used in the novel, underlining the relationship between them and the themes developed that reflect the author's philosophical and existential concerns.
