Sacred Realism: Religion and the Imagination in Modern Spanish Narrative

Noel Valis


This book re-examines the role of Catholicism in the modern Spanish novel. While other studies of fiction and faith have focused largely on religious themes, this book views the religious impulse as a crisis of modernity—a fundamental catalyst in the creative and moral development of Spanish narrative.

Keywords: Catholicism, Spanish novel, fiction, faith, religious impulse, modernity, Spanish narrative
