Plot Outline: How did life in post-civil war Spain—a time of uncertainty and oppression—influence the writings of the period? In this program, renowned experts explore the literature of the Franco era through the experiences of Ana María Matute and other writers who chose to stay in Spain after the Nationalist victory in 1939. Dramatic readings include excerpts from Camilo José Cela’s La Colmena, Luis Martín-Santos’s Tiempo de Silencio, Carmen Martín Gaite’s Entre Visillos, Miguel Delibes’ Cinco Horas con Mario, and Gonzalo Torrente Ballester’s Don Juan, as well as from the works of Matute, Jaime Gil de Biedma, and José Angel Valente.
