BURGOS, Fernando. Temporality and Confessions in Caracol y otros cuentos. Alpha [online]. 2005, n.21, pp.09-24. ISSN 0718-2201.

Postmodern discourse is central to Panamanian writer Enrique Jaramillo Levis´ work. Its usage illustrates the need to regard conscience as the receptive agent of a plural experience of temporality such as that of a deep psychological scope, or one which is purely perceptive, another one rooted in the imaginative process, one other spiritual, as well as a confessional dimension of time guided by the unpredictability of memory in search of universal meaning and the introspective power of art. On the other hand, Jaramillo Levis´ original approach to time is inseparable from the metaphysical questions underlying the intersection of writing and writer emerging from the act of creation. In this essay, I study both dimensions in his work Caracol y otros cuentos.

Palabras clave : Enrique Jaramillo Levi; Panamanian Short Story; Postmodernity; Time; Memory; Confessions.
