This book shows how novels can filter political information on wars back to an interested audience in a neighboring country. Scholars have remarked that World War I offered women possibilities that were not available to them prior to the war. One could ask if this is also true about the Spanish Civil War. While Spanish literature provided intricate, vibrant portraits of women and gender relations, the texts Bralove discusses maintained traditional, home-bound, nurturing, supportive, and non-combative roles for women whose lives centered on domesticity and/or men. The use of force against undefended civilian targets during the Spanish Civil War, to an extent not previously seen in modern Western Europe, created a fundamental change in the landscape of war. One famous reaction to this was Picasso's well known painting "Guernica", which was created in part to build support for the Republican cause. The painting depicts a bombing in a marketplace, and it implies that there are no borders between home and battle fronts. In discussing the gender 'road not taken' there are discussions of biographical elements, personal, political, and intellectual, that underlie the connections between writers and their works. This might shed light on how authors treated gender, and most significantly what they did not say in their novels with this respect.
