LECTURE : Spanish exiles in Great Britain – Manuel Chaves Nogales ( 2nd June )

Manuel Chaves Nogales (1897-1944) practised ‘New Journalism’, with a blend of journalistic elements and the purely narrative.

He creates two outstanding books:Juan Belmonte, matador de toros y El maestro Juan Martínez que estaba allí. Chaves Nogales had the courage to condemn the dangers, the sectarianism and the atrocities of the two enemies of liberal democracy –fascism and communism– in his book about the Spanish Civil War A sangre y fuego He believed fervently in the Republic.

When the Government abandoned Madrid, he went into exile with his family in France, where he collaborated with the French and Latin American press. Wanted by the Gestapo, he moved to England, where he continued as a journalist until his premature death in 1944 following an illness.

Participants: María Isabel Cintas (Universidad de Sevilla), Antonio M. Sánchez (University of Birmingham) & Xavier Pericay (journalist and writer). In collaboration with the Cultural Office of the Spanish Embassy in the United Kingdom.
