This work takes as reference the paradigm of the transnational modes of remembering, as proposed by Cultural Memory Studies, to approach the case of Galician novel about the Civil War and Francoism published since the year 2000, in the context of the revival of the past in the Spanish public sphere. After explaining the theory of modes of remembering, the chapter reviews the characteristics of antagonism, cosmopolitanism and agonism to analyse to what extent Galician writers have adopted these discourses in their stories of the recent past. The study concludes that there is a growing agonistic memory that investigates the perpetrator and the complexity of the historical context.
