ABSTRACT
The article presents a critique of poems that appear in the 1953 book "Mientras los hombres mueren," by Carmen Conde, focusing particularly on the themes of violence and war that appear in the poems. The poems were written during the time of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) and are written from a feminine perspective that is aware of the role of men, women, and children in the war. In the poems, Conde charges women and mothers with the responsibility of ending the war.
