While the Men Are Dying
About This Book
I came across Carmen Conde’s collection of prose poems, written in the midst of the Spanish Civil War, when I was putting together a course on Spanish literature in 1993. They were all but forgotten in Spain. I published an edition of these poems with Manchester University Press in 2009, with notes on each of the poems, for university students. I felt, however, that this very important testimony needed to be introduced to a non-Spanish speaking readership.
