Apart from this connection with Sartre, La Casa Verde is also an impressively regionalist narrative that presented challenges to its earliest readers and continues to intrigue scholarship at present.

Moreover, the title of the last section of the essay is perhaps most germane to our present discussion: Nevertheless, the s exposed his serious doubts regarding the power of the written xii word to actually save the world from its own devices.

Could literature be characterized with the impotence that Sartre attributed to it in the mids? The novelist also confirms his special interest in Karl Popper during his political campaign: His pleasure with either of these fictions, however, is counterpoised against his insistence that Alberto and the Academy return to the realm of documentation, the only reality that he deems truly necessary in the real world.
