Synopsis

Offering a vivid, moving, and often surprising, cross-section of the writing generated by the most momentous political and cultural flashpoint of the 1930s--the Spanish Civil War--this anthology contains works by a vast array of prominent literary figures, including W.H. Auden, George Orwell, Stephen Spender, Samuel Beckett, Aldous Huxley, Hugh MacDiarmid, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene, John Dos Passos, Jean-Paul Sartre, Claude Simon, Ernest Hemingway, Virginia Woolf, Rosamond Lehmann, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Cyril Connolly, Louis MacNeice, Leon Trotsky, Hilaire Belloc, and countless others. Spanish Front presents writers taking sides; reflecting on the War's progress in essays, diaries, letters, journalism, poems, stories, and novels; reporting their visits to the fighting zones; and expressing their responses that ranged from hope to despair and satisfaction to horror.
