Spanish writers in exileStreaming Video - 2006 | Spanish
After the Spanish Civil War, the defeated Republicans had only two options: to stay in Spain and accept the rule of Franco's authoritarian regime or to leave their homeland and go into exile. In this program, leading scholars talk about the lives and works of Spain's dispossessed literary elite, whose voices refused to be silenced. Dramatic readings include excerpts from Rafael Alberti's "A Traves de la Niebla," Leon Felipe's Espanol del Exodo y del Llanto, Luis Cernuda's "Un Espanol Habla de Su Tierra," Rosa Chacel's "Cultura y Pueblo," and Ramon Sender's Requiem por un Campesino Espanol.
