Camilo Jose Cela [electronic resource]

Radiotelevisión Española
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
For Camilo Jose Cela, the Spanish Civil War and his early acceptance and later rejection of Franco's dictatorial rule were the defining influences on his life, prompting him to pioneer a novelistic style of brutal realism known as tremendismo. Yet Cela's acute powers of observation and skill in colorful description are also apparent in his other works, including his travel books. In this program, the Nobel Laureate revisits some of the places in his beloved Spain that are dear to him. Excerpts from his writings provide insights into his penchant for experimentation and innovation.
