Fractured Frontiers: The Exile Writing of Nazi Germany and Francoist Spain

Monica Jato, John Klapper

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The history of literary exile under both Nazism and Francoism has been characterized by an acrimonious distinction between territorial exiles, who left their country, and "inner exiles," who did not. This study adopts a unique cross-cultural approach, challenging the traditional divide, demonstrating similarities not only between "inner" and "outer" in each national setting but also between the German and Spanish contexts themselves. It offers new perspectives on the literary historiography of Germany and Spain, showing how, in the impact and consequences of dictatorship, the histories of the two countries intersect.
