Luis Goytisolo “Humans have known darkest times, so foolish, possibly not.” Luis Goytisolo. THE VOICE OF A COMMITTED WRITER Within the group of social realism has been prominent place Luis Goytisolo, although recent work has taken very different directions. Committed writer who lives over time and eventually you live. Luis Goytisolo Gay was born in Barcelona on March 17, 1935, brother of the writers and Juan Jose Agustin Goytisolo. As a young boy lost his mother, a victim of a bombing on the city Franco in Barcelona in 1938. His penchant for reading and writing began very early and began writing two novels at age eleven, from then on was his uncle Luis, who introduced him to the love of American fiction.

Currently exists in the city of El Puerto de Santa Maria la Fundacion Luis Goytisolo, located in the Palace Villarreal and Purullena. His first novels, The outside (1958), Biblioteca Breve Prize, and the same words (1962), are influenced by the realistic objectivism time, with special emphasis on dialogue, the absence of a central character and characterized by structural dispersion and plurality of perspectives juxtaposed with interlocking actions. This structural complexity is exacerbated in tetralogy Antagonia known for some of the summits of the Spanish narrative of recent years, where the reader is immersed in an endless tangle of thoughts, feelings, stories and discursive sequences: count (1973) kind of reflective character generational autobiography, The Greens May to Sea (1976), The Anger of Achilles (1979) and Theory of Knowledge (1981).
The group reviewed many facets of human life, combining the narrative and discourse, analyzing especially the memories of childhood and adolescence in a bourgeois society and the relationships and erotic, the author devotes particular attention to the confrontation of the writer with the writing and the act of creation, including through the metaliterature-in the third uses the mechanism of the novel within the novel. The language becomes redundant, thorough, ideological and discursive. In later novels the theme is repeated twice and disappears every time the importance of the argument: The Edict of Milan (1979), Trail of fire away (1984), won the Critics Award, Research and conjectures Claudio Mendoza (1985), The paradox of bird migration (1987) and statue with pigeons (1992), National Fiction Prize in 1993. Eyes, circles, owls (1970), included with Devore (1976) Fables (1988) are experimental in nature prose. Among his later novels, we quote: Placer thinners (1997), Stairway to Heaven (1999), Journal 360 (2000), Liberation (2003) and attentive ear to the birds (2006). He has also published the essay The Future of word (2002), collection of articles in the press. Luis Goytisolo works occasionally in several newspapers, especially in the country, and is author of TV documentary series: Indian and Mediterranean. From his early works that reflect their own social realist atmosphere prevailing then, Luis Goytisolo has continued to evolve into a more complex, simultaneous multiple perspectivism and patterns.
