Bit of fratricidal jollity from Ángel Ganivet, Idearium español (1897): “Confronted with the spiritual ruin of Spain we must put a stone where our heart is and throw a million Spaniards to the wolves if we all do not wish to be thrown to the swine.” No national stereotypes, please. Just trying to think of characters consumed by pigs in Spanish literature. Pasqual Duarte’s brother has his ears bitten off by one, as does someone in a minor novel influenced by Cela. No wolves occur at the moment, and poor old Manuela doesn’t count.
