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.

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.

A #1 international bestseller reminiscent of the works of Roberto Bolaño, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and Edward Rutherford—a page-turning historical epic, set in early eighteenth-century Spain, about a military mastermind whose betrayal ultimately leads to the conquest of Barcelona, from the globally popular Catalonian writer Albert Sánchez Piñol. Why do the weak fight against the strong? At 98, Martí Zuviría ponders this question as he begins to tell the extraordinary tale of Catalonia and its annexation in 1714. No one knows the truth of the story better, for Martí was the very villain who betrayed the city he was commended to keep. The story of Catalonia and Barcelona is also Martí’s story. A prestigious military engineer in the early 1700s, he fought on both sides of the long War of the Spanish Succession between the Two Crowns—France and Spain—and aided an Allied enemy in resisting the consolidation of those two powers. Politically ambitious yet morally weak, Martí carefully navigates a sea of Machiavellian intrigue, eventually rising to a position of power that he will use for his own mercenary ends. A sweeping tale of heroism, treason, war, love, pride, and regret that culminates in the tragic fall of a legendary city, illustrated with battle diagrams, portraits of political figures, and priceless maps of the old city of Barcelona, Victus is a magnificent literary achievement that is sure to be hailed as an instant classic.

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.

"Cuando todo se derrumba, cuando el mal se erige en sistema y la crueldad en norma, ¿puede un lápiz salvar el mundo? 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."--

This book explores how modernity, the urban, and the sacred overlap in fundamental ways in contemporary Spain. Urban spaces have traditionally been seen as the original sites of modernity, history, progress, and a Weberian systematic disenchantment of the world, while the sacred has been linked to the natural, the rural, mythical past origins, and exemption from historical change. This collection problematizes such clear-cut distinctions as overlaps between the modern urban and the sacred in Spanish culture are explored throughout the volume. Placed in the periphery of Europe, Spain has had a complex relationship with the concept of modernity and commonly understood processes of modernization and secularization, thus offering a unique case-study of the interaction between the modern and the sacred in the city.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Spanische Sprache, Literatur, Landeskunde, Note: 1,0, Universität Passau (Professur für Romanische Literaturwissenschaft/Landeskunde), Veranstaltung: Der Spanische Bürgerkrieg im Spiegel von Spielfilm und Roman, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der spanische Bürgerkrieg gehört zu den Angelpunkten der spanischen Geschichte. Er hat nicht nur unauslöschliche Spuren in der Struktur und Gesellschaft des Landes hinterlassen, sondern inspiriert auch die Fachwelt schon seit mehreren Jahrzehnten. Kaum ein anderer Abschnitt der spanischen Geschichte ist von Historikern mit ähnlicher Intensität erforscht worden. Auch der literarischen Welt bieten die Geschehnisse von 1936 bis 1939 ein unerschöpfliches Arsenal von Geschichten für neue Erzählungen. Trotz dieser Flut an Literatur hat sich ein fruchtbarer Prozess der Vergangenheitsbewältigung in Spanien bis heute nicht entwickeln können. Gründe dafür sind sowohl die einseitige Erinnerungspolitik unter Franco, wie auch die Verdrängungspolitik während der Transición. Es ist daher leicht nachzuvollziehen, dass, gerade auf Seite der republikanischen Opfer, das Bedürfnis dem eigenen Schmerz Ausdruck zu verleihen gleichbleibend hoch ist. Heute fehlt es der Politik meist schlicht am nötigen Willen sich neben den Heldentaten des Krieges auch eingehend mit den unangenehmen Seiten der Vergangenheit auseinanderzusetzen. Erst in den letzten Jahren lassen sich, mit Gesetzentwürfen wie dem Ley de la Memoria, erste zögerliche Schritte hin zu einer umfassenden Aufarbeitung des Geschehenen erkennen. Bleibt ein langfristiges Umdenken in Politik und Bevölkerung jedoch aus, so wird die Erinnerung an den Bürgerkrieg sukzessive mit der Zeitzeugengeneration aussterben und damit für immer verloren gehen. Da das gemeinsame Erinnern nicht zuletzt seit Pierre Nora und seiner Theorie der Lieux de Mémoires einen essenziellen Bestandteil der kollektiven Identität darstellt, würde sich dieser Verlust gravierend auf die gemeinsame Zukunft aller Spanier auswirken. Genau an diesem Punkt setzt Manuel Rivas mit seinem Roman El lápiz del carpintero an. Er stellt in ihm die verschiedenen Möglichkeiten dar, die persönlichen Erinnerungen der Zeitzeugen an folgende Generationen weiterzugeben. Gleichzeitig sucht er jedoch auch einen neuen Zugang zur Bürgerkriegsthematik an sich. Mit dem ehemaligen Gefängniswärter und franquistischen Mitläufer Herbal schafft er ganz bewusst Raum für die persönlichen Erinnerungen der einfachen Leute, um so die vorherrschende historische Meinung zu komplettieren. Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht, welches Bild Rivas dabei vom Bürgerkrieg zeichnet und welchen Beitrag der Roman dadurch zum Prozess der Vergangenheits-bewältigung in Spanien leisten kann.

Having lost the Civil War in Spain, four republican rebels lead a fugitive existence deep in the Cantabrian mountains. Wounded and hungry the rebels are frequently drawn from the safety of the mountains into the villages they once inhabited, risking their lives and the lives of anyone helping them. Faced with the lonely mountains, its harsh winters and unforgiving summers, it is only a matter of time before the Fascists hunt them down. Llamazares's lyrical prose serves to animate the wilderness, making the landscape as much a witness to the brutality of the Franco regime as the persecuted villagers and republicans.
