Abstract

La novela-testimonio ha sido desde siempre un género literario híbrido y difícil de definir. En este trabajo, empezaré destacando los rasgos principales e imprescindibles de este tipo de novela y trataré a la vez el tema polémico de la aceptación o no de la ficción en el mismo. En la segunda parte del estudio, me detendré en el análisis de la primera novela del escritor cubano Reinaldo Arenas Celestino antes del alba dentro de un contexto testimonial y aclararé cuál es su lugar dentro del género testimonio. The documentary novel has always been considered as a hibrid literary genre difficult to define. The first part of this article will emphasize its main and essential characteristics and, at the same time, address the polemic topic of the acceptance or not of the fiction in it. The second part of the study is an analysis of the first novel of the Cuban writer Reinaldo Arenas, Singing from the well, within the context of the documentary novel.
