We have been enduring a long period of crises that are changing the way individuals see themselves and their relationship to others. For instance, the effects of the 2008 economic crisis in Spain have incentivized a reflection on both the bad direction of the country’s politics and on the faulty transition to democracy after Franco’s death in 1975; climate change is not only posing environmental challenges, but also political ones, as the current Puerto Rican crisis demonstrates. Crises change paradigms, and, like in the recent cases of Spain and Puerto Rico, the outcomes are highly unfavorable, leaving victims to suffer their improper management.

Jocasta: What is it like to be deprived of your country? Is it a great calamity?

Polynices: The greatest: the reality far surpasses the description.

Jocasta: What is its nature? What is hard for exiles?

Polynices: One thing is most important: no free speech.

Jocasta: a slave’s lot this is, not saying what you think.

THE WAR LITERATURE: MAPPING THE UNHEARD VOICES ACROSS THE GLOBE

Concept Note:

I am the enemy you killed, my friend.

I knew you in this dark: for so you frowned

Yesterday through me as you jabbed and killed.

I parried; but my hands were loath and cold.

Let us sleep now. . . (Wilfred Owen: Strange Meeting)

Following the economic development of the mid-nineteenth century, writers and journalists increasingly focused on urban contexts and the experience of protagonists moving from rural to urban backgrounds. As a result, modern authors refer to the coagulating ferment of the metropolis for characters undergoing a formative change, while more numerous voices later investigated the opposite, the fragmenting if not destructive impact on both individuals and the social groups they belong to.
