Abstract:

What are we referring to when we talk about the republican literary exile in 1939? It is possible to segregate this literature from that revolution and from the people that fought for this to become a reality and that suffered so much, the hardship, the death and the exile? The exile is a sub-culture that can be difficultly integrated in the culture of the acceptance country. During Franco’s dictatorship it is necessary to consider three different literatures: the literature which was close to the political regime, the one that showed some “cracks” in the regime –we are referring to existentialism and alarmism in the 1940’s decade, a kind of literature which started it own breaking-off the regime by the 1950’s decade– and finally the literature in the exile. It is necessary to ask if it is correct to write the history of the Spanish literature in the post-war period from an exclusive point of view and to take into consideration a questionable territoriality. As soon as possible it is essential accepting and admitting that the history of the Spanish literature if badly written and badly told. De qué hablamos cuando hablamos del exilio literario republicano de 1939? Se puede segregar esa literatura de esa revolución y del pueblo que por hacerla realidad luchó y sufrió toda suerte de penalidades, la muerte y el exilio? El exilio es una subcultura que difícilmente se integra en la cultura del país de acogida. En los tiempos de la dictadura franquista cabe partir de la existencia de tres literaturas: la afín al sistema, la que entrevé grietas en el sistema, existencialismo y tremendismo de los a os 40, y que a partir de 1950 empezó la ruptura con el régimen; y la literatura del exilio. Habría que plantearse si es válido escribir la historia de la literatura espa ola de posguerra desde el exclusivismo de una equívoca territorialidad. Urge reconocer y aceptar que la historia de la literatura espa ola a partir de 1939 está mal historiada, mal narrada.
