Silences from the Spanish Civil War, Paperback Book

Silences from the Spanish Civil War Paperback


Jane Duran's father fought in the Spanish Civil War with the Republican army and went into exile after its defeat.

This poem-sequence takes as its point of departure her father's silence about the war: 'He lays down his arms.

He raises his arms over his head. He will not tell'. In a constant search for 'the breath of the unknown', the poems move between the present and the past.

Professor Paul Preston's introduction offers a broad outline of the course and significance of the war and places the poems within their historical context.
