    Abstract:
    This paper offers a metafictional reading of William Faulkner's novel AS I LAY DYING (1930), a reading which goes beyond the usual mimetic interpretation of this novel as an exploration of the characters' psychology. Faulkner's writing also explores and allegorizes itself, through the creation of paradoxical narrative forms which carry out an implicit meditation on the modernist problematics of narrative representation. ________________________________________________________________________________ Consiste el artículo en una lectura metaficcional de la novela de William Faulkner AS I LAY DYING (1930), lectura que va más allá de la clásica interpretación mimética que se solía ofrecer de esta novela como una exploración de la psicología de los personajes. La escritura de Faulkner también se explora y alegoriza a sí misma, creando formas narrativas paradójicas que suponen una meditación implícita sobre la problemática de la representación narrativa modernista.
