The River (1955)
Tekijä: Rafael Sánchez Ferlosio
During the Spanish Civil War, the River Jarama was the scene of a bloody, month-long battle which ended in a stalemate, with the Republicans suffering 25,000 casualties and the Nationalists, 20,000. In this story, set twenty years later, the Jarama has become a favourite picnic spot for escaping Madrid's heat. The novel describes one sizzling August day when various social groups-young and old, married and single-travel to the river to swim, picnic and relax. During the day they talk, flirt, get drunk, argue and, mostly, make their peace. Through their seemingly innocuous conversations, the author subtly introduces symbolist intimations of Civil War battles and evokes the great, shimmering death that lies upon the land. Social realism, written in 1955 under Franco's regime, The River subtly hints at the unresolved conflicts of the past, with tiny, specific details unfurling into vistas of grief and deprivation.
