Carmen Martin Gaite
in search of conversationStreaming Video - 2005 | Spanish
As a child of the Spanish Civil War and the repressive post-war era, Carmen Martin Gaite found kindred spirits among the Madrid literati, led by her future husband Rafael Sanchez Ferlosio, during the '50s. In her long and uninterrupted literary career, Gaite chose socially critical topics such as the relationship between the sexes and the differences between provincial and city life. Using modes of expression that became increasingly more personal and experimental, her prose hovers between reality and dreams, the trivial and the exceptional, and the novel and the essay. This program features an interview with Gaite and readings from her works, including Las Ataduras, as well as the critical insights of writer and journalist Inmaculada de la Fuente, the University of Madrid's Alicia Redondo Goycoechea, and Fernando Valls, of the Universidad Autonoma of Barcelona.
