Editorial Reviews

Review

<div>'This is an excellent edition of Requiem, not least for its thorough and penetrating introductory essay'. -- Bulletin of Hispanic Studies

'This volume will no doubt become the standard text for Engliah readers'. --Modern Language Review
</div> --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Publisher

Three qualities of the novel are emphasized in the essay by Prof. Borja Rodríguez Gutiérrez that introduces this edition: the story's meticulous, mathematical structure devised by a self aware writer; its use of reiteration of certain key elements; and the carefully structured allegory with which it transmits its denunciation of the injustice and treachery that underlie history. The careful lexicographic notes included will help the modern reader grasp the plot in all its dramatic, Spanish, intensity.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By S. G. Penberthy on January 27, 2007
Format: Paperback
I studied and became familiar with the facts and dates asociated with the Spanish Civil War, but I didn't understand it until I read this book. Sender's story is masterful, he carries you into the life of a common Spaniard from birth to tragic death. As I read I became aquinted with the Catholicism that is so Spanish and that faith's integral role in their society. As the story progressed I empathized with the political injustice and circumstances of the times, until ultimately I was heartbroken over the injustice and tragedy with which the story ended.

Profound, moving, enriching, truly Spanish.

A very short booklet with a background in the Spanish Civil War considers the eternal conflict between rich and poor, left and right. But above all it is about not being true to ones calling, the seeking out of friends with power and the bitter flavor of a failed calling and lost values.

I read this book in one sitting - it's very easy to go through - the spacing and paging contribute to the reading rhythm -. The detailed chronological and analytical intro are a plus to facilitate understanding for even the less familiarized with this work or the author.

Format: Paperback
Este breve relato, clásico ya del siglo XX en España, fue publicado allá por 1950 o 53, cuando el novelista se encontraba trabajando en los Estados Unidos de profesor. Si a alguien le suena el nombre de Ramón J. Sénder, será por esta breve obra, y tan solo por ella. Ambientada en la víspera de la Guerra Civil Española, en el 36, a través de numerosos flashbacks el protagonista, un cura rural, va recordando la vida de un hombre a quien él bautizó, casó, y finalmente, dijo misa de aniversario de muerte. Lo maravilloso del relato es que en tan pocas páginas queden desveladas no sólo las almas de estos dos personajes, sino que quede fotografiada el alma de un pueblo. Un pueblo que podría ser España entera, pues abarca en pocos personajes el espectro identitario de España, un país lleno de pobreza y riqueza extremas, de envidias ancestrales, de orgullo, vanidad, de paganismo tribal, de pasiones y odios exacerbados por la ignorancia, la superstición, y el nihilismo.

Lo más destacado para mí ha sido comprobar lo bien que el autor refleja, sin emitir juicios ni propagandas, la esterilidad del catolicismo en este pueblo tan bárbaro (bárbaro en el sentido peyorativo) que sigue siendo el español. El catolicismo español fue un fracaso sin paliativos; ha sido como vestir de seda a la mona; durante la Guerra Civil la mona se reveló lo que era: una mona. La civilización nunca llegó a la península. Incluso hoy seguimos igual de fratricidas, pero con el patrocinio económico de la Unión Europea.
