|Abstract||This paper focuses on Abilio Estévez's novel El navegante dormido (2007) in order to analyze the relationship between writing and death in it. Considering absence as a common root to both these elements, this paper pays special attention to how absence shapes the novel's narrative construction by demanding the replacement of expression with accumulation. The text in fact reflects the inability of verbal language to convey the original experience of an existential void.|
