About This Item: 
La primera novela de Camilo José Cela, hito en la literatura española de la posguerra. La familia de Pascual Duarte vio la luz en 1942 y tuvo un enorme impacto en el panorama literario español del momento. Primer libro de Camilo José Cela, supuso un valioso punto de partida para la narrativa española de posguerra. La vida trágica de su arquetípico protagonista, gobernada por la más salvaje violencia, era un comentario indirecto sobre la barbarie padecida por los españoles durante la recién concluida Guerra Civil, al tiempo que daba carta de naturaleza a una tendencia literaria renovadora, luego conocida como «tremendismo». ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The first novel by Camilo José Cela, a landmark in postwar Spanish literature. The Family of Pascual Duarte first saw the light in 1942 and had a huge impact on the Spanish literary scene of the time. Camilo José Cela's first book was a valuable starting point for postwar Spanish narrative. The tragic life of its archetypal protagonist, who lived submersed in anguish, pain, and the most savage violence, was an indirect reflection of the cruelty and savagery suffered by Spaniards during the recently concluded Civil War, while at the same it opened the door to a new literary style, later known as "tremendismo", which is characterized by a tendency to emphasize violence and grotesque imagery.
