Ana Maria MatuteStreaming Video - 2005 | Spanish
One of Spain's foremost women writers, Ana Maria Matute has displayed a recurring fascination with the Spanish Civil War and the defenselessness of children and the poor. Framed within the context of an appearance by Matute at the Real Academia Espanola de la Lengua, this program travels to Barcelona and locales in Spain's Rioja region. Excerpts from Olvidado rey Gudu and El rio demonstrate a subtler sensitivity and a tightening in construction as compared with Matute's earlier works, while Casa de juegos prohibidos: textos inocentes illustrates the breadth of her writing.
