Requiem For a Spanish Peasant

Ramon Sender was born in Huesca in the North of Spain in 1902. He was a journalist and writer. The novel was first published in Mexico under the title “Mosén Millan” in 1953 and got its current name — Requiem for a Spanish Peasant — since 1960. The motive that the book was first published in Mexico was due to the censorship in Spain during those years. (wikipedia)

They say that the bible is literature and therefore open to interpretation. In the same line of reasoning it seams logical that there are so many branches in (Christian) religion as each has its own interpretation of the sacred word.
For the summary of this book I would turn this completely up-side-down: as this novel is also literature, the story can be interpreted in many ways, yet a certain fact can only be interpreted in a single way without ambiguity: and that is the role the (defenders of) the church played in the Spanish civil war.

The novel offers a serene and quiet sequence of events of which the real civil war seems absent. Instead of explicitly showing the atrocities of the civil war the story focuses on the action of a single man, the protagonist of the story. Only when following his actions the reader learns why this war is called a “civil war.” The protagonist in question is a parish priest.

The title of the book — Requiem for a Spanish peasant — refers to the mass the priest is preparing a year after the death of the peasant. When preparing the mass, the reader is served with a short biography of the peasant, leading to a climax of his death.

The form in which the novel is written is also quite unique; on one hand it follows a simple sequence of flashbacks or even a sequential countdown to the climax as if the damage couldn’t be prevented. And the story is mixed with the singing contributions of the altar-boy, who gives his own view on the events in between the story told by the narrator and priest.

Als the characters on the background of the story help to give depth to the novel. The mother, Jeronima, of the peasant for instance, pleas when a young doctor enters their house:
“I can tell what they miss by the way they are showing off.”
or:
“Both kids and animals are fond of those who like them.”

And then the book is interesting as an object of understanding the Spanish culture. I would argue that a lot of what is written in the novel continues today; differences between peasant and landowners but then in a modern terminology … as is the church in Spain: still very present in the daily life.

Principal Hazards in My Region

Upon reviewing FEMA’s Regional NIMS Coordinator Roster it is resolved that the state of Delaware is located in Region III which included Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, the state of Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

Traditionally the area of Delaware encompasses the potential for an array of disasters and emergencies as well as latent terrorist events. In order to reduce the related loss of life and property the city, state and federal agencies work hand-in-hand to abet the crisis as they occur. In specific threats within the state, Delaware is centered on the occasional Nor’easter, a possible hurricane and the ever present flooding. We have recently been seeing a rash of tornado warnings issued for Maryland but so far they are rare in Delaware.

We are not without the chances of experiencing industrial emergencies as the Northern portion of the state has an abundance of commercial chemical and oil related enterprises. Foremost of those companies include DuPont, Keen, Arch, Atlantic Chemical and Conoco. In addition to the perils connected to the chemical industry plants which reside in the Wilmington area we also have the prospective hazards of the Salem Hope Creek Nuclear Reactor which is directly across the bay in nearby New Jersey. An accident which may occur at the Salem reactor could affect the lives of thousands of people who reside in Northern Delaware.

Foremost of concern by the Homeland security is the terrorist element present in our society since we are so close to the Washington DC area and they are part of the Region III states. In the recent past the HQ Disaster Operations Directorate has supported the Secret Service in the 56th Presidential Inauguration, a whistle stop tour, the 2008 G-20 Summit and the 2009 G-20 Summit held in Pittsburgh. Incident Management Teams were actively deployed on the scene for all events.

To combat the potential of natural or manmade disasters the state preparedness agency, DEMA has partnered with several other agencies such as the American Red Cross and other volunteer organizations. DEMA publishes and distributes free educational literature to inform the citizens of the potential threats and how they can best prepare themselves. During a possible natural disaster both the local television and radio stations combined with National Weather Service participate in notifying the neighborhoods involved of the approaching hazard.

On the local level we have developed local Emergency Operations Plans which outline the responsibilities of all agencies involved. These plans have taken the state plans and expanded upon it to compensate for our local issues. There are provisions provided for not only natural disasters but also nuclear, biological and even hazardous material incidents. During potential deteriorating weather the daily status is monitored for dangerous trends. In the past the city has assisted many of the business operators in developing their individual emergency plans specifically tailored for their establishment.

In general the preparedness level is adequate, however in any program that deals with the unexpected there is always room for improvement. The various agencies did very well in last winter blizzard. We need to involve ourselves more in potential flood areas on a local level which must adequately take into consideration the re-engineering of roads and highways when necessary. If the city, county and state fails to satisfactorily deal with these flooding vulnerabilities in their community planning programs the homeowners may be subject to unnecessary risks resulting from flooding.

As You Write Your Children’s Book, Consider “The Slow Reveal”

Eighteen months ago, I took up karate. It’s a great workout, but the biggest reason I train is I want to be a formidable senior citizen. If someone tries to nab my purse or deny my senior discount at Denny’s, I’ll be able to answer with a quick roundhouse kick to the solar plexus. By laying the foundation now, I’ll be a badass when I’m 65.

But the coolest thing about taking up karate when you’re a woman in her mid-40’s is that people don’t automatically expect it. If you’re just a casual acquaintance, you won’t know I’m working toward my black belt. And by the time I’m collecting Social Security, the possibility won’t even cross your mind. Unless you try to steal my purse.

In life most people become more complex as we get to know them. This should also be true for characters in  children’s books. At a conference recently, Lyron Bennett, editor for Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, called it “the slow reveal”. It means giving your characters enough varied qualities that some can be withheld until called for in the plot.

The slow reveal is especially important when writing a series. If J.K. Rowling had allowed Harry Potter to reach his full power as a wizard in Book 1, would fans have waited nine years and six more books to learn if he finally defeated you-know-who? But equally important is planting the seeds early on for who you want your character to become. From the start, readers saw Harry’s potential, and Rowling allowed greatness to surface in Harry when it was least expected. Those qualities grew along with Harry as the series unfolded.

You don’t want to give away everything at once in stand-alone books either. Picture books and easy readers, with their lower word counts and straightforward plots, do best with characters who have one or two surprises up their sleeve. In Peggy Parish’s classic easy reader Amelia Bedelia, the child sees that Amelia is doing a bad job on her first day as a housekeeper because she doesn’t understand the list her employer left her. But even before Amelia starts on the list, she whips up a lemon merengue pie. What the reader doesn’t know is that Amelia makes the best pies anywhere, which eventually saves her job at the end of the book.

Parceling out your protagonist’s strengths and weaknesses keeps the tension taut in a novel. In Gary Paulsen’s beloved Hatchet (ages 11-14), Brian, a city kid, is stranded in the Canadian wilderness after the his bush plane crashes, killing the pilot. Neither Brian nor the reader know if he’s got what it takes to survive on his own. Can he figure out how to start a fire? Yes, quite by accident. Can he fish? Eventually. Kill and cook a bird? How about survive a moose attack or weather a tornado? Brian evolves from reacting to his predicament and stumbling upon solutions to carefully taking control of his situation. But nothing Brian does is out of character. Though he must teach himself to live in the wild, he draws upon bits of information he learned from watching television or at school, and reserves of strength that were in him all along.

Even if you’re writing a single title, make your children’s book characters complex enough to live for several books, just in case. Fans loved Brian so much that Paulsen was persuaded to use the character in several other wilderness adventures. Picture book series (such as Mo Willem’s Pigeon books) or easy reader series like Amelia Bedelia generally grow because the protagonist’s quirks are open-ended and funny enough that readers don’t mind exploring them over and over in different circumstances.

The slow reveal works particularly well in mysteries. In this genre, the readers gradually get to know the victim (perhaps an honor student who is discovered to be running an Internet business selling test answers), and the villain (who may seem like a good guy at the beginning of the book). Or, how about a first person narrator in any genre who appears normal and likable early on, but becomes more unreliable as the story unfolds? Read Robert Cormier’s timeless young adult I Am the Cheese for a masterful example of a shifting first person reality. If you prefer a broader perspective, try Avi’s Nothing But the Truth: A Documentary Novel for ages 11-14, which looks at one incident from several viewpoints, gradually separating fact from fiction. So when you first breath life into your characters, don’t stop too soon. Add layers that can be exposed later on. These surprises will keep readers enthralled, whether you’re writing about a boy wizard, a demanding pigeon, or a ninja grandma.
