Essay from the year 2002 in the subject Romance Languages - Spanish Studies, grade: 1,8 (A-), University College Cork (Spanish), course: HS 2057 Cinema & Identity in Spain & Latin America, language: English, abstract: The film version of the novel La Familia de Pascual Duarte by Camilo José Cela is written and directed by Ricardo Franco Rubio and was first screened in 1975. Without any background knowledge the film seems hard to follow, boring and depressing, but by watching it with background knowledge, just as Spanish history, Spanish cinema history, the novel itself or by watching the film for the second time one can realise, that it is a very demanding film full of symbols, of small important details which all have a second meaning, a hidden meaning. Turning a novel into a film is a very complex task, one cannot just take the book and, without changing anything, trying to make a film out of it. There are huge differences between reading a book and watching the same thing on screen: ”the analysis of a literary text reveals the manner in which linguistic and literary tools such as graphemes, syntax, tropes, shadings, and narrative strategies create a story and its characters. The cinematic rendering of that verbal fiction is accomplished by means of cinematic tools such as mise-en-scéne, photography and camera work, editing, sound, narrative strategies, and choice of actors.”1 So there must be some changes, because some details of books that are good to read, are not necessarily good to watch! It is difficult to say, when is a film version of a novel ”good” or ”bad”, because the filmmakers work with other instruments, in a ”good” film version we do not see exactly the same, that we imagined while reading the book. By comparing the novel to the film there are similarities and differences, in the film there are characters and scenes left out but also things added, which do not appear in the book. ”Novel and film share several basic structural elements. 1) Both focus on the text′s central character, Pascual Duarte, an agricultural labourer living with his family in an isolated, unnamed village in Extremadura, Spain. The time frame is principally the first three decades of the twentieth century. 2) Both texts present a case of individual violence that, while enacted within a circumscribed social sphere, resonates with meaning on a national level. 3) Both texts, hindered by the censorship of the Franco years, mask the significance of the social and historical context for criminal behaviour. 4) Both texts actively engage the receptor in the task of providing a motive for the extremely violent behaviour exhibited by the protagonist.”2

"The United States has come to know Spain, its people, and its land through its literature and, more recently, through the international distribution of many of its films. This analysis aims to probe the creative Spanish soul in greater depth through the particular prism of the cinematic adaptation." "The analysis of the Spanish novels La familia de Pascual Duarte and Los santos inocentes and their cinematic adaptations Pascual Duarte (1975) and Los santos inocentes (1984) is based on the intersection of literary and cinematic theory." "The first chapter of this study summarizes various theories whose integration forms a basis for the analysis of the cinematic adaptation. Structuralism, semiotics, deconstruction, reader criticism, and Freudian/Lacanian psychology serve both film and literary criticism in their analysis of texts. The theories examined in this chapter are inflected in later chapters into the criticism and analysis of the novels and films in question." "The second chapter provides general background information on agrarian Spain - the historical, economic, and ideological context of both La familia de Pascual Duarte and Los santos inocentes. While in most cases the texts refer only obliquely to the reigning ideology that is responsible for the plight of the rural worker, the history of the province of Extremadura, where rural poverty is and was a social and economic phenomenon, is crucial to the understanding of all four texts whose stories are set in this province."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Few events have stirred the emotions and caught the imaginations of intellectuals as did the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39. The Spanish Civil War in Literature examines the diverse literatures that the war inspired: a literature relating directly to the war, a literature of exile arising from the forty-year dictatorship of Francisco Franco, and a polemical literature embracing pro-Franco and Loyalist sympathies.In this book, specialists from a variety of fields explore these literatures within comparative and interdisciplinary frameworks. They reflect upon film, poetry, novels, painting, discourse, biography, and propaganda. The essays are grouped according to the original languages of the works they discuss—French, Russian, English, and Spanish.
