I am a Senior lecturer in English at the University of Zaragoza (Spain), and I specialise in literary theory and narratology. I keep going back to (and perhaps working on) a number of ideas and their interface: the evolutionary nature of reality, the narrative articulation of representations, the dramatistic structure of the human world and mind, and the virtuality of the world generated by human attention and interactions. The study of “Evolutionary narratology” and of “The Great Theatre of the World” are two possible routes through this complex of ideas.
