France and the Spanish Civil War

Author: Mr Martin Hurcombe
Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.
ISBN: 9781409478805
Release Date: 2013-05-28
Genre: History

In this wide-ranging study of French intellectuals who represented the Spanish Civil War as it was happening and in its immediate aftermath, Martin Hurcombe explores the ways in which these individuals addressed national anxieties and shaped the French political landscape. Bringing together reportage, essays, and fiction by French supporters of Franco's Nationalists and of the Spanish Republic, Hurcombe shows the multifaceted ways in which that conflict impacted upon French political culture. He argues that French cultural representations of the war often articulated a utopian image of the Nationalists or of the Spanish Republic that served as models behind which the radical right or the radical left in France might mobilise. His book will be of interest not only to scholars of French literature and culture but also to those interested in how events unfolding in Spain found an echo in the political landscapes of other countries.

"La Voix du Nord demande si les deux auteurs se sentent particulièrement concernés par le thème de ce soir, Écrire la vie. Nous nous sentons particulièrement concernés. Nous ne voyons pas ce que nous pourrions écrire d’autre. En poussant un peu, nous pourrions démontrer qu’écrire la vie est un pléonasme. – Mais est-ce que ce n’est pas voué à l’échec ? Nous pensons que si. Nous persistons néanmoins dans cette gageure. Nous serons bientôt au Salon du livre."
