Chapter Summary

Julio Llamazares (1955) has situated almost all his literary work in his home region, the former province of León. This article examines to which extent Llamazares’ rejection of the label ‘writer of regional novels’, usually given to him by literary critics, can be regarded as justified. Especially two novels, Luna de lobos (Wolf Moon) and La lluvia amarilla (Yellow Rain) are examined, starting from a typical definition of the term ‘regional literature’. The conclusion is that these novels only conform to a limited extent to that definition. The landscape described is used to sketch out people’s inner self and their emotions and not to describe country life or the particular qualities of the people who live there.
