The myth of resistance to the invader is considered a manifestation of collective identity whose relationship to modernity is nonetheless contradictory at times. The popular uprising of Madrid on May 2nd(1808) appears often in this manner in various historical and cultural constructions that describe it. The multiplicity of representations of the uprising counts with the classic text by Galdós, El 19 de marzo y el 2 de mayo, which has served as a basis for the recreation in film by Garci in Sangre de mayo during the context of the bicentennial events. If both Galdós and Garci use the liberal ideology mythology, in turn the historical conceptions that they express open up a rhetoric that relates in different ways to the discourses of modernity.
