Ramón J. Sender tra verità e finzione, con epilogo cinematografico

Published December 22, 2015

Abstract

The Spanish cultural renaissance of the first three decades of the 20th century was interrupted in 1936, when intellectuals abandoned their aesthetic ambitions to describe war. However, some writers were immune to the aesthetic charm of the period. Ramón J. Sender in the 20s used a testimonial style in his journalistic collaborations and in the 30s approached reality for militant purposes, thus anticipating the hybridization of reality and fiction. He narrated the Casas Viejas anarchist revolt in his news reports (1933) and in two narrative reworks, Casas viejas (1933) and Viaje a la aldea del crimen (1934). Fifty years later, the meeting of fiction and reality and the hybridity of genres will also characterize the narrative approach adopted by cinema in narrating the same facts.
