Juan Goytisolo

Juan Goytisolo – el bueno

The Spanish writer Juan Goytisolo is considered to be one of the three Spanish writers truly known to Arabic population, together with Cervantes and García Lorca. During his life he showed great respect, admiration and the biggest compromise with Arabic world Muslim issues and his great intellectual curiosity on the Arabic world, which, according to his belief, was highly connected with Spanish tradition. In this opinion article named “Spaniards in Paris, moritas in Madrid”, Goytisolo establishes a parallelism between the difficulties of integration that the Spanish women of the 60s found in their labour exodus as service girls in Paris and the current situation that young Moroccan women in Spain undergo developing the same type of work. Surprising as it may seem, we do not seem to have learned: the same continues happening nowadays
