Al respecto de este ensayo, comenta el propio Fuentes (1929): "M s que una respuesta, la novela es una pregunta cr tica acerca del mundo, pero tambi n acerca de ella misma. la novela es, a la vez, arte del cuestionamiento y cuestionamiento del arte. No han inventado las sociedades humanas instrumento mejor o m s complejo de cr tica global, creativa, interna y externa, objetiva y subjetiva, individual y colectiva, que el arte de la novela."
