The Representations of the Spanish Civil War in European Children’s Literature (1975-2008)

Series:

Blanca Ana Roig Rechou and Veljka Ruzicka Kenfel

This work analyses the Spanish Civil War in Spanish and European Children’s Literature from 1975, when Spain passed from a dictatorship to a parliamentary monarchy, to the present. The contributors focus on collecting narrative works that deal with the Civil War to describe how the war was lived, remembered and referenced in Spain and other countries and selecting books of literary importance to analyse pre-established topics such as genre, ideology, female/male characters, illustrations and intertextualities. They also propose translations of those works which have not yet been translated into one of the languages of Spain and compare the works based on theoretical-methodological models offered in theories such as post-colonialism, feminism, comparativism and cultural studies.
