CIVIL WAR: “Invading animals and scum”: this was France’s humiliating treatment of Spanish exiles
‘Field of Almond Trees’ (1968), the book that closes his series of novels on the Civil War entitled ‘The Magic Labyrinth’, Max Aub wrote: «This is the place of tragedy: facing the sea, under the sky, on earth. This is the port of Alicante, on March 30, 1939. Tragedies always happen in a certain place, on a precise date, at a time that cannot be delayed». Hispanist Ian Gibson considers it his masterpiece, due to its brilliant description of the desperation and feeling of abandonment experienced by the Spaniards who embarked on the path of exile in 1939.
