The construction of a homeland in Spanish exile literature


This paper focuses on two example texts from the Mexican exile of Pere Calders and Max Aub: Lʼombra de lʼatzavara and De cómo Julián Calvo se arruinó por segunda vez. Based on the semiotics of space of Jurij Lotman, it will be shown how the characters of the selected texts reconstruct and reinvent their home country through the creation of a new space in the host land. This space will create the illusion of their idealised homeland.
