Abstract

After Franco’s death, oppositional discourses emerged in Spain about the Civil War. Was it possible or desirable to talk about this national trauma in any “objective” way? Using a range of fictive, non-fictive, and historical-analytical sources, I identify an aesthetic way in which the Francoist and Republican camps could start to come together: not with objectivity, but with a recognized inclusion of voices of distinct groups.
