Female Figures and Censorship: The Reception of Stefan Zweig in Spain (1946-1960)

Inés Condoy Franco


The works of Stefan Zweig have always experienced a very lively reception in Spain from its very first publication in this country in the 1930s. Since the early 2000s his works have been reedited and everything that contains his signature easily finds a readership. This broad reception in Spain has inspired me to explore the nature of the success of Zweig’s stories. As the focus of my research paper is set how Zweig reception was possible during Franco’s regime in Spain. How it was possible despite the topics and the female image they show, and how publishing houses never stop trying to publish new editions, they knew that readership were demanding it. This descriptive study has been conducted following the evidence that is possible to find in Archivo General de la Administración and studying the comments and reason given by censors in the different reports about in his novellas Amok, Vierundzwanzig Stunden aus dem leben einer Frau and Brief einer Unbekannten in order to find an explanation that can justify the success or failure of Zweig works in Spain during this historical period
