En la cárcel de Santiago de Compostela, en el verano de 1936, un pintor dibuja el Pórtico de la Gloria con un lápiz de carpintero. Los rostros de los profetas y de los ancianos de la Orquesta del Apocalipsis son los de sus compañeros republicanos de presidio. Un guardián, su futuro asesino, lo observa fascinado... La historia de ese lápiz, conductor de memorias, portador de almas, continuará hasta nuestros días. Después de La lengua de las mariposas, Manuel Rivas retoma el hilo de la tragedia española, la guerra que estremeció al mundo y marcó la historia del siglo XX. Pero El lápiz del carpintero no es una historia más sobre la guerra. Trata de la vida de los hombres y las mujeres en el lado más salvaje de la historia. Trata de la fuerza del amor ocupando el hueco abismal de la desesperanza. Con el lápiz del carpintero, con las manos de las lavanderas, con el dolor fantasma de los amputados, con la belleza tísica de los enfermos... va tejiéndose la red de la realidad inteligente. Aquí el lenguaje se confunde con el aliento de la vida, con el código morse de las vísceras. Una novela escrita desde hoy y para siempre.

Manuel Rivas has been heralded as one of the brightest in a new wave of Spanish writers influenced by Spanish and European traditions, as well as by the history of Spain over the past seventy years. A bestseller in Spain, The Carpenter's Pencil has been published in nine countries. Set in the dark days of the Spanish Civil War, The Carpenter's Pencil charts the linked destinies of a remarkable cast of unique characters. All are bound by the events of the Civil War-the artists and the peasants alike-and all are brought to life, in Rivas's skillful hand, with the power of the carpenter's pencil, a pencil that draws both the measured line and the artist's dazzling vision. Translated from the Galician by Jonathan Dunne.

Spanishness in the Spanish Novel and Cinema of the 20th-21st Century is an exploration of the general concept of “Spanishness” as all things related to Spain, specifically as the multiple meanings of “Spanishness” and the different ways of being Spanish are depicted in 20th-21st century literary and cinematic fiction of Spain. This book also represents a call for a re-evaluation of what being Spanish means not just in post-Franco Spain but also in the Spain of the new millennium. The reader will find treatments of some of the crucial themes in Spanish culture such as immigration, nationalisms, and affiliation with the European Union as well as many others of contemporary relevance such as time, memory, and women studies that defy exclusivist and clear-cut single notions of Spanishness. These explorations will help contextualize what it means to be Spanish in present day Spain and in the light of globalization while also dissipating stereotypical notions of Spain and Spanishness.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,3, Universität Potsdam (Institut für Romanistik), Veranstaltung: PS La novela de la guerra civil espanola, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Mit El lápiz del carpintero erzählt uns der galicische Autor Manuel Rivas einen Teil der Geschichte seiner Heimat. Ein Teil, der aufs engste verbunden ist mit der Geschichte Spaniens. Dieses Buch, das überwiegend in der spanischen Bürgerkriegszeit spielt und uns einen Einblick in diese turbulente Zeit gibt, handelt jedoch nicht nur von der Guerra Civil. Rivas bedient sich dieser dunklen Epoche Spaniens, um die Geschichten der Menschen zu erzählen, die sie gelebt haben. Menschen wie der Arzt Da Barca, der Gendarm Herbal, der Maler ohne Namen (pintor) oder Marisa Mallo. Bei einem Interview wurde Manuel Rivas einmal gefragt, warum er denn wieder den Bürgerkrieg als Spielraum seines Romans ausgesucht habe. Seine Antwort darauf war: “... es la metáfora de todas las guerras. Quizá no seamos conscientes de ello pero se batieron enfurecidos todos los vientos de la Historia, las grandes cuestiones de este siglo y las anteriores, que se habían ido acumulando.” In den Figuren von El lápiz del carpintero spiegeln sich die verschiedensten Konflikte, die von der Menschheit je ausgetragen wurden und werden. Hass vs. Liebe, Links vs. Rechts, Religion vs. Ungläubigkeit, Reich vs. Arm. Themen, die bis heute an Aktualität nichts verloren haben, uns aber trotzdem nicht immer bewusst sind. Für Rivas ist die Literatur ein Antivirus gegen das historische Vergessen, aber auch eine Möglichkeit, das Geschehene aus heutiger Sicht zu reflektieren. Schriftsteller sind für ihn curanderos de sombras, die mit ihrer Heilkunst Leiden nicht physischen Ursprungs heilen.

Galician audio/visual culture has experienced an unprecedented period of growth following the process of political and cultural devolution in post-Franco Spain. This creative explosion has occurred in a productive dialogue with global currents and with considerable projection beyond the geopolitical boundaries of the nation and the state, but these seismic changes are only beginning to be the subject of attention of cultural and media studies. This book examines contemporary audio/visual production in Galicia as privileged channels through which modern Galician cultural identities have been imagined, constructed and consumed, both at home and abroad. The cultural redefinition of Galicia in the global age is explored through different media texts (popular music, cinema, video) which cross established boundaries and deterritorialise new border zones where tradition and modernity dissolve, generating creative tensions between the urban and the rural, the local and the global, the real and the imagined. The book aims for the deperipheralization and deterritorialization of the Galician cultural map by overcoming long-established hegemonic exclusions, whether based on language, discipline, genre, gender, origins, or territorial demarcation, while aiming to disjoint the center/periphery dichotomy that has relegated Galician culture to the margins. In essence, it is an attempt to resituate Galicia and Galician studies out of the periphery and open them to the world.

In the final moments of the Spanish Civil War, a writer and founding member of Franco's Fascist Party is about to be shot, and yet miraculously escapes into the forest. When his hiding place is discovered, he faces death for the second time that day-but is spared, this time by a lone soldier. The POW becomes a national hero and a member of Franco's first government, while the soldier is forgotten. Sixty years later, Cercas's novel peels back the layers of truth and propaganda in order to discover who the real hero was. Elegantly constructed and told with self-deprecating, melancholy humor, Soldiers of Salamis is a wholly original work of literature by a modern master.

The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) pitted conservative forces including the army, the Church, the Falange (fascist party), landowners, and industrial capitalists against the Republic, installed in 1931 and supported by intellectuals, the petite bourgeoisie, many campesinos (farm laborers), and the urban proletariat. Provoking heated passions on both sides, the Civil War soon became an international phenomenon that inspired a number of literary works reflecting the impact of the war on foreign and national writers. While the literature of the period has been the subject of scholarship, women's literary production has not been studied as a body of work in the same way that literature by men has been, and its unique features have not been examined. Addressing this lacuna in literary studies, this volume provides fresh perspectives on well-known women writers, as well as less studied ones, whose works take the Spanish Civil War as a theme. The authors represented in this collection reflect a wide range of political positions. Writers such as Maria Zambrano, Mercè Rodoreda, and Josefina Aldecoa were clearly aligned with the Republic, whereas others, including Mercedes Salisachs and Liberata Masoliver, sympathized with the Nationalists. Most, however, are situated in a more ambiguous political space, although the ethics and character portraits that emerge in their works might suggest Republican sympathies. Taken together, the essays are an important contribution to scholarship on literature inspired by this pivotal point in Spanish history.

This innovative book examines the emergence of a memory discourse in Spain since the millennium, taking as its point of departure recent grave exhumations and the "Law of Historical Memory." Through an analysis of exhumation photography, novels, films, television, and comics, the volume overturns the notion that Spanish history is pathological.

Working Through Memory studies various constructions of memory in contemporary Spanish literature, evoking different aspects of a past of repression, from both the civil war and the Franco regime. Ferran analyzes narrative texts published between the 1960s and 1990s that present memory and the recuperation of a traumatic past as their main theme. Drawing on a wide range of theoretical approaches to the study of memory, this book examines how each text presents a meta-narrative reflection of the very process of memory production, of how it is written and rewritten, recounted or repressed, transmitted or forgotten. Drawing particularly on trauma theory, Ferran argues that the analyzed texts provide effective models for what Freud called "working through" memory. This process is shown to be effective as it unsettles dominant historical discourses in the present, allowing for the pain and suffering of the victims of a traumatic past to emerge through various forms of narrative disruption and fragmentation.
