This article examines a range of narratives by authors such as Robert Brasillach and Charles Maurras describing the Spanish Civil War. Despite the privileged access enjoyed by these writers, the war evoked in their works is mediated through a series of existing narratives concerning the war and Spanish history more generally. Consequently, this article argues, the war recounted in the works of the far Right is more intertextual than historical, revealing a labyrinthine re-organisation of established narratives.
