The Literature of Spain [electronic resource]: 1975 to the Present

Films for the Humanities & Sciences
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
With the death of Franco came a loosening of political restrictions and a restoration of many civil liberties. In this program, respected authorities look at the past 25 years of literature in post-Franco Spain and the literary inclinations of the next up-and-coming generation of poets, authors, and playwrights. Dramatic readings include excerpts from Manuel Vazquez Montalban's "Sin Memoria," Francisco Umbral's Mortal y Rosa, Juan Goytisolo's Senas de Identidad, Rosa Regas' Fabula Moralista, and Antonio Gala's Poemas de Amor.
