ANDERSON-DE LA TORRE, María Antonia. Approach Between Literature and Politics: Spanish Civil War View From Max Aub”s The Magic Labyrinth. La Palabra [online]. 2019, n.35, pp.15-27. ISSN 0121-8530.

During the Spanish Civil War, Max Aub was part of that collective of Republicans that fled out the country escaping from death by going into exile after Franco”s arrival to the power. As a writer, Aub used all his energy to compile in a series of six novels El laberinto mágico [The Magic Labyrinth] as many events as possible that were connected to the three years prior to the beginning of the dictatorship. His goal was, mainly, to compile events, as a chronist. In these chronicles, a major theme stands out-the effects of war on the production, reception and preservation of literature. Poets and novelists find themselves, suddenly, in the middle of a crossfire where it seems impossible not to take sides. At least this is how Aub expresses it in Historia de la Novela Española Contemporánea [Contemporary Spanish Novel History], where he distances himself from his former mentor, Ortega y Gasset. Thus, abandoning the idea of the dehumanization of art and focuses his poetic art more on a realist literature that shows the artist in the middle of the war.
