The privilege of pain: The exile as ethical model in Max Aub, Francisco Ayala, and Edward Said

Title:
The privilege of pain: The exile as ethical model in Max Aub, Francisco Ayala, and Edward Said
Authors:
Faber, Sebastiaan
Abstract:
Is there something so virtuous or beneficial about exile that those who suffer it can serve as an ethical example for all intellectuals, exiled or not? The work of Max Aub, Francisco Ayala, and Edward Said seems, in different ways, to suggest so. The main purpose of this paper is to point out the tensions, contradictions, and dangers of this figurative use of exile as an ethical model, arguing that it minimizes the concessions, negotiations and struggle for legitimacy that generally mark the exileâ s existence.
