julio llamazares conversa sobre derecho y literatura en

Julio Llamazares es poeta, novelista y un prolífico ensayista y periodista. Se centra en temas como la historia y la memoria de la sociedad española, tanto individual como colectiva y, en particular, el progresivo declive del patrimonio cultural rural. Su obra abarca múltiples géneros, incluyendo 6 novelas, así como varios poemarios, relatos y ensayos, escritos de viajes, guiones y periodismo. Desde principios de los años ochenta tiene una columna regular en El País y ha aparecido en radio y televisión[1].
Su primera novela, Luna de lobos, fue publicada en 1985 y llevada al cine en 1987, bajo la dirección de Julio Sánchez Valdés, con un reparto que incluía a Santiago Ramos, Antonio Resines y Kiti Mánver[2]. Relata la historia de un grupo de cuatro fugitivos atrapados en el lado equivocado de las líneas enemigas en los primeros días de la guerra civil española, que resistieron durante nueve años escondidos en las montañas cántabras para intentar evitar la salvaje represión nacional. Recientemente se ha traducido al inglés y se ha publicado con el título Wolf Moon[3]. En palabras del Dr. Chris Bannister, que escribe para el Arts & Humanities Research Council, «Wolf Moon es un relato conmovedor de los horrores del franquismo y de las presiones que la dictadura ejerció sobre los que vivieron bajo ella».

In the jacket of the novel Distintas formas de mirar el agua, the editor Carolina Reoyo wrote: «Can you return to a place you never left? «It reminded me,» she says now, «of these verses by Félix Grande: ‘Where you were once happy you should never return… / You know you will return, that you are condemned to return, humble, where you were happy. / You know you will return because happiness consisted in marking you with nostalgia, turning your life into a scar…’. Of course it is possible to return to a place we have never left. That place is also us». Llamazares has never stopped being in Vegamián.

In 2016 he was a finalist for the Critics’ Prize of Castilla y León with his novel Distintas formas de mirar el agua. Before the award’s decision, he issued a statement announcing that he did not aspire to it and that he would reject it in case it was granted to him.[2] In a previous call (2014) he had already been a candidate for that award, with Las lágrimas de San Lorenzo, without obtaining it.[3][4]
Julio Llamazares states that his vision of reality is poetic. His way of writing is very close to the earth, we could say that he is a romantic writer in the original sense, which is the awareness of man’s split with nature, of the loss of a fictitious golden age because it has never existed.

words at midnight: julio llamazares

«I would never be so imaginative as to create a character like Isabel Díaz Ayuso, who at the same time is fascinating, because of what Sartre said that «stupidity is fascinating». Isabel Díaz Ayuso, like many others, is the proof that, as the French philosopher also said, «a clever person recovers from a success, a fool, never».
«I am convinced that in a debate on television or in any media between someone who uses set phrases and an inventory of ideas and a thinker, the thinker always loses. We have reached a point of deterioration of conversation and dialogue that means that the one who gives more voices is more right, the one who insults more is more right and in the face of that it is difficult to behave. This can be seen in television talk shows and debates, that in the end it is not the one who argues the most, whether he is right or not, but the one who shouts the loudest and the one who prevents the other from speaking the most, who is more right. I would not know what a civilized party or a civilized person should do in this situation. I, who consider myself a civilized person, most of the time what I do is to keep quiet when the conversation turns into shouting and constant provocation».
