Abstract (summary)

This article reads Pas pleurer (2014), Dolorès (2018), and Josep (2020) through the lens of care studies. While Lydie Salvayre, Bruno Loth, and Aurel work in different media, they each narrate their account of the Spanish Civil War through a series of flashbacks, with older adults recounting their past experiences. I argue that the notion of care acts as a link between the formal characteristics of these works and their content centered around vulnerable people. The interactive nature of the narrations set up echoes between the different time periods, drawing attention to ongoing, if varied, needs for care.
