(p.5) Chapter One Transitional Memories
Lost in Transition

H. Rosi Song

Liverpool University Press

The Spanish political period that spanned from the death of dictator Francisco Franco in November 1975 to the victory of the Socialist Party (PSOE) in the election of 1982 has been held up by many as a model of successful political transformation from an authoritarian regime to a democratic government. Yet criticisms of this period abound, and discussions of the means and ends of this political and cultural transformation continue. This chapter discusses why it is important to look into the visual and literary texts about the Transición as a renewed attention that shares an important generational imprint. It identifies a generational cohort and their complicated relationship with the memory of the Spanish Civil War, the dictatorship, and the transition.

Keywords:   Transición, Spanish Civil War, generational memory, politics of memory, crisis of memory
