Generation of '36
The generation of 1936 (Generación del 36) is the name given to a group of Spanish artists writers , poets and playwrights who were working about the time of the Spanish Civil War (1936 and 1939).
This was essentially a literary movement that suffered harsh criticism and persecution that followed from the division of neighbours into winners and losers in the various battles of that struggle, as well as the physical hardships and moral miseries arising from social instability and political chaos. These were the ingredients that gave strength to their essentially existentialist philosophy.[clarification needed]
