Abstract

MOLINA RUIZ, Santiago  and  LOPEZ-MARTIN, Álvaro. LITERARY JOURNALISM IN MANUEL LEGUINECHE: THE CASE OF EL CAMINO MÁS CORTO. Acta lit. [online]. 2021, n.62, pp.131-150. ISSN 0717-6848.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29393/ac62-plsa20008.

Abstract: Manuel Leguineche is one of the main exponents of New Journalism in Latin literature, as well as one of the leading reporters on geopolitical and travel conflicts during the last third of the 20th century. However, his figure and his work have barely been addressed by the scholar research. This work aims to identify, through a qualitative content analysis, the characteristic of El camino más corto, which will allow us to know the incidence of New Journalism in the production of this book and to delve into the phenomenon of Literature of travel. The use of literary resources, the meticulousness of the descriptions and the personal and creative style, among other characteristics, confirm the framing of this work in the New Journalism. In addition, in this book Leguineche adopts and inaugurates for Spanish journalism the concept The Heming-way of life, which reinforces its status as one of the most representative non-fiction texts in Spanish-speaking literature of the last century.

Keywords : Manuel Leguineche; Literary Journalism; New Journalism; Travel Journalism; Non fiction.
