Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter describes the role of politics in the lives of the people of Orense. The serene impression of life in Orense in the happy years of the 1920s and early 1930s omits one element that is necessary to consider: politics. The Barreiroses were the reverse of political, and probably would have agreed with Jane Austen, who, in Northanger Abbey, comments, #x201C;from politics it was an easy step to silence.#x201D; They were strong Catholics, it is true, but Catholics who loved their families and were rural people with a vision. The artistic creativity of Spain was at a high level and its people were world leaders in all the arts, including new ones such as the cinema.
