Ramón Gómez de la Serna Exhibit: Novels

The Special Collections Department at the University of Pittsburgh's Library System celebrated the online accessibility of a majority of the Papers of Ramón Gómez de la Serna with an exhibit of selected manuscripts and photographs.



This display documents Ramón’s work as a novelist. Ramón's consistent reuse of magazine pages or book covers to organize his manuscript drafts hints at his interest in decontextualizing everyday objects and perceptions.

Exhibited below are manuscripts drafts for the novels El hombre de alambre (RGS 7-11), Los muertos (RGS 7-22), and Toros–Páramo (RGS 8-16). Click on the folder number to see the complete digitized folder.
