Literature of Protest examines the political protest embedded in the popular literature of the Franco era in Spain, going beyond the typical direct dissent offered against a political regime into the more subtle cases of protest. The authoritarian nature of the Franco government did not allow the production of direct political attacks. Instead, writers integrated political views subtly into their novels and dramas. This book explores this presence in the literature formed during the forty years of the Franco regime through common themes such as alienation and political discourse, but also through dissection of myth and societal structure. Finally, it suggests the possibility of a powerful undercurrent present in Spain at the time, fueled by protest literature, that produced a smooth transition to democracy upon the death of Franco.
