Unamuno´s mirrow-games: on the seeming omnipotence and meaningfulness of writing in the grammatical void

In this article, I argue that, even though the doubt raised by Unamuno is unintelligible from a grammatical standpoint, it may at least be vaguely imagined, which is just what he needs in order to maintain a vicious circle generating faith that allows us to understand the purpose of his work and, by extension, to try to fill the reader’s life with meaning.
