Abstract

This article offers an analysis of the ways in which Mario Regueira’s novel, Outono aquí, and its characters challenge the silence imposed upon non-hegemonic national and sexual identities and narratives. Outono aquí establishes—through a series of intertextual references—a literary genealogy that exceeds the limits of sexuality, language, and nation, to offer a queer Galician literary aesthetic that, far from marginal, can only be understood in a transnational and transhistoric context.
