Catalonia's Literary Cartography
Barcelona is a well known literary topic, but Catalan literature has also documented other areas of its geography, like the Pyrenees, the Ebro valley, the Balearic Islands ... It is interesting to note that two of the most notable international successes in recent years, Maria Barbal and Jaume Cabré, write specifically about rural areas. The course aims to trace the construction of literary cartography of Catalonia in the postwar literature. At the same time, however, we will try to understand why some authors have abandoned urban areas to establish their stories in marginal places, indefinite and forgotten. This tendency is not characteristic only for the Catalan literature, but it is also visible in the contemporary literature in general. Taught in Spanish; most readings available in English.
