Abstract

Maria Teresa Leon's poetic depiction of the anguish of exile has earned her recognition as a vibrant voice of twentieth century Spanish literature. She was a writer at the forefront of political and intellectual activity during her beloved Spain's civil war (1936-1939). Compelled by the struggle for justice, she portrayed the suffering of the oppressed and disempowered, specifically women, children and workers.
