CANTO NIETO, José Ramón del. The Presence of Classic Fable in Miguel de Unamuno. Between Criticism and Intertext. Nova tellus [online]. 2021, vol.39, n.2, pp.167-196.  Epub Oct 04, 2021. ISSN 0185-3058.

Unamuno’s interest in Classical fables, mainly those influenced by Aesopus, goes beyond the alleged fable’s morals. After practising a meticulous analysis of its elements and also an effective critique, he theorized about what surrounded the genre: its structure, its teachings, etc.; but he also assimilated Aesopus’ fables to his own works under different genres and adapted them to his interests as well as illustrated intertextuality.

Keywords : Unamuno; Fable; Moral; Critic; Intertext.
