The Silences of O Silencio Redimido

Álex Alonso Nogueira


This article reviews the editorial history of Silvio Santiago’s novel O silencio redimido, released in 1976, but first submitted to the Spanish censorship in 1964. After situating the author in Galician Literature in the early 1960s, the article examines public and private documentation, and analyzes the cultural quarrel surrounding the manuscript of the novel. This hidden history is a case study that will contribute to descriptions of the history of Galician literary and political life during Francoism. Finally, this research also aims to explore a genealogy of Galician novels of memory.
