This is then his nebulous experiment. As an alternative he proposes to let the novel write itself, without plan. The plot is to unfold in a muddled and disorderly fashion, similarly to life.

They will speak a great deal even if they have nothing to say but this language will portray them. There is consequently a great deal of dialogue, or the most natural of spontaneous of languages, in Niebla. This writing without a goal is however, at a great distance from the later Surrealist "automatic writing". Niebla then reads very similarly to a play.

There is no Modernist twisting of meanings. Language in its social aspect becomes suspect. Alternatively, he also wants to explore the inner language and how to get into the mind of the protagonist without making the author too impossibly intrusive. Rather than a Woolfian stream of consciousness, we have a dog.

This is a charming dog. The suitably named Orfeo becomes the Alter-Ego of Don Augusto, so that we know what he thinks, again through dialogue, and at the end the dog will also utter his own words. This literary role of the dog is explicitly explained to us by Unamuno, who increasingly interferes in his novel. But the most striking aspect of this novel is Unamuno playing with himself and his Authorship.

Now I have a confession to make.

Although a fan of Italian literature, I have never read Luigi Pirandello, mainly because I have always been afraid that my tastes are too traditional to appreciate this experimental master. As for The Waves — I did read the novel over twenty years ago, but that was only because it was lent to me by a girl I fancied. As in any self-respecting Modernist novel, the plot is secondary, if not inexistent.

There is a problem though - the wilful Eugenia is not particularly drawn to Augusto. Meaning that he is soon embroiled in a nascent affair with the earthier Rosario, the young woman who does his laundry.

What is surprising is that even at his most abstruse, Unamuno retains a light and comic touch. Indeed, when not exploding novelistic conventions to smithereens, he indulges in a type of comedy which reminds me of early Evelyn Waugh.

It deserves to be known not only for its literary-historical merits, but also — and perhaps more importantly — because it is such a great read.

{PDF} Miguel Unamuno - Niebla {eBook}

Published in and translated from the Spanish by Marciano Guerre as recently as it starts by telling the simple story of Augusto Perez: He is out for his morning constitutional and for no particular reason finds himself following a young woman back to her house.

He makes enquiries through the concierge and finds out that the young woman Eugenia is a piano teacher, he soon fancies himself as a suitor and makes more polite enquiries.

Augusto lives alone with his two servants and a foundling dog and is vaguely seeking some direction to his life. He has monologues mainly addressed to his dog, has conversations with his servants and a couple of friends on the subject of women whom he has only recently discovered and finds himself chatting up his laundry maid Rosario.

Eugenia rejects his suite as she is in love with the lazy out of work Mauricio, but when she learns about Rosario she feels slighted and sets out to win back Augusto. The reader is alerted by the Prologue written by Victor Goti who is a character in the novel that all is not as it seems.

Goti has hinted in his prologue that Unamuno delights in playing tricks with metaphysical concepts and has been criticised for producing material that is for jesting and romping. It soon becomes clear that this is exactly what Unamuno is doing with Mist. That may well be because of the characters that Augusto seeks out: Paparrigopulos is also writing a book on forgotten Spanish authors who have had work published and is about to write a further book of that third class of authors; those who having thought of writing, had never got to the point of doing so.

Half way into the book, Victor reveals that he is writing a novel which he calls a nivola and tells Augusto what he is doing. He is asked if there is any psychology in it and he sidesteps this by saying that it will consist mainly of dialogue, because people like conversation even when it says nothing.

Unamuno will have none of it explaining that Augusto does not really exist.

And so from a simple story of Augusto looking for a wife the reader is gently led down a path that becomes more weird, but the signs have been there from the start and the ride along the way if full of fun moments. It's very much a novel written by a philosophy professor, where the characters are constantly breaking off the action to discuss the fundamental problems of human existence, but it's presented in a very playful and entertaining way.

The ostensible storyline is a rather silly romantic comedy full of rival suitors, servants, scheming aunts and misunderstandings: There is also a metatextual element, with not one but two putative authors jumping in and out of the story and arguing about whether it is a novel or something quite different, a nivola.

It sounds like a mess, but Unamuno has both the charm and the intellectual strength of purpose to get away with it, and I think it would be quite readable even for someone who doesn't really care for philosophy.

Augusto, a wealthy man, uses his fortune to win the love of a young woman, and while pondering suicide after she calls off their wedding, learns he is actually a fictional character and has no control of his life.
