By focusing on an influential literary figure, Jacinto Salas y Quiroga, this article explores how the notion of exile was fundamental to the establishment of a mainstream, Christian liberal elite in Spain from 1834 onwards, as liberal exiles returned. The self-fashioning of the Spanish liberal elite calls into question any distinction between a core, dominant, deeply founded, liberal European experience of nation-statehood, and a migratory, diasporic, exilic sensibility that is, in Said’s words, ‘nomadic, decentred, contrapuntal’
