Overview

Mercé Rodoreda is one of the best-known Catalan authors. Her works have enjoyed great success in academic circles, as well as in the general public. In the last 15 years, more than 150 articles and books about her work have been published, mainly in the United States and Spain. This annotated bibliography selects and comments on 198 critical narrative works, including nine biographical studies. It provides a detailed analysis of the critical perspectives which have been used to analyze Rodoreda's works, referring the reader to the bibliographical entries which best illustrate certain theoretical approaches or themes. This work will facilitate the work of researchers and students by summarizing the existing criticism and referring readers to appropriate sources of information, allowing them to identify themes and aspects of Rodoreda's works that have yet to receive the critical attention they deserve. This work is cosponsored by the Mercé Rodoreda Foundation.
