Original Title: Enciclopedia del crepúsculo

In his Encyclopaedia of the Dusk, Rafael Argullol has brought together texts that he has written in a period of twenty-five years. They are presented here as a personal encyclopaedia which makes up both a chronicle of the times that we live in and the author’s intellectual autobiography. By this means, the book is made into a cultural mosaic in which there converge literature, art, philosophy and politics, as seen from an extremely personal point of view. Always bestriding both narrative and the essay, the voices that make up Encyclopaedia of the Dusk are a powerful spiritual witness to our time.

Praises

«After a quarter of a century opening up transversal routes between literature, art, philosophy and experience, Rafael Argullol has become one of the most cultured and daring explorers of the contemporary human condition».
Jordi Pigem, La Vanguardia

«This book is a personal encyclopaedia that reveals and runs through the recurrent obsessions, the author’s familiar angels and demons, and his notion of culture, up to the point that it becomes a veritable intellectual biography».
Jacinto Antón, El País

«A brilliant encyclopaedia!».
Manuel Cruz, El País
