El Laberinto De Las Aceitunas Eduardo Mendoza ...

This article outlines two types of progressive relationships the protagonist of Eduardo Mendoza\u2019s detective trilogy (El misterio de la cripta embrujada, El laberinto de las aceitunas, and La aventura del tocador de se\u00F1oras) has with his urban space. These evolutions highlight the ability of the protagonist to represent Barcelona as its mask \u2013 an identity marker that resets the guidelines that condition interpersonal interaction \u2013 over time. By applying the theories of Mikhail Bakhtin, the author argues that masking at various textual levels allows the image of Barcelona to be a Thirdspace of possibility in which the characters are able to achieve liberty and resolution, rather than merely an unchanging city brimming with social injustices. Ultimately, it is an anonymous protagonist, rather than political leaders, who most completely embodies Barcelona\u2019s heteroglossia and multiculturalism, and resolves the tension between the city\u2019s social (dialogic) and programmed (monologic) functions.
