    Abstract

    The Discurso de la novela española contemporánea (Discourse on the Spanish Contemporary Novel, 1945) is an early example in Max Aub’s exilic production of his work as a historian of literature. The essay has been mostly understood as making reference and intervening within the parameters of Spanish culture. Central to these arguments is Aub’s defense of realism as the preferred mode of representation, which in this way articulates his reflections on the Spanish novel. In this article, however, the Discurso is analysed as a European text. It argues that the essay becomes fully intelligible and readable only when interpreted in relation to the aesthetic and political debates, framed by the Popular Front, that surrounded the international struggle against Fascism in the 1930s.
