مروری بر کتاب
-- The Hive presents a panoramic view of the degradation and sufferings of the lower-middle class in post-civil war Spain. Readers are introduced to over a hundred characters through a series of starkly rendered interlocking vignettes. Filled with violence, hunger, and compassion, The Hive captures the buzzing ambitions and set-backs of Spanish society under the rule of Franco.
Cela's novel depicts the hardship borne by the lower-middle class following the Spanish Civil War. Told through a series of interlinked vignettes, the story involves nearly 100 characters. For its blunt portrayal of life under a dictatorship, this 1953 book was banned during the Franco regime.
