This first major study in English of the novels of the Spanish Civil War is based on an analysis of some eighty Spanish novels written in Spain and abroad during the Franco period. The works are related to earlier examples of war literature, such as the French novels of the First World War. Professor Thomas examines the effects of propaganda in the early novels of the Civil War as well as the disillusionment of later works, and the effects of propaganda and censorship on literary style are also discussed. Major writers covered include Max Aub, Francisco Ayala, Ramón Sender and Camilo José Cela.
