The antifranquist struggle, instigated from the Spanish Communist Party, PCE, among the intellectuals and university students, begun in 1954 and settled in 1956 thanks to Jorge Semprún's work, who worked as the undercover envoy of the communist leadership exiled in Paris. The reports addressed to the communist leadership serve as a good analysis of the cultural situation in Spain in the 50's, and show the steady improvement of the communist roots, which showed his effect in 1956.
