Mercè Rodoreda, the most translated author in Catalan fiction

Neus Real

Abstract


Mercè Rodoreda is the most translated author in Catalan literature. La Plaça del Diamant, which has been translated into 37 languages in dozens of different translations, places her ahead of such internationally famous fiction writers as Jaume Cabré and Albert Sánchez Piñol. This symbolic novel of the human condition, hailed by critics and beloved by a diverse array of readers, is particularly representativ of the author’s literary talent and ambition and can be considered a major 20th-century classic thanks to its extraordinarily high quality.

Keywords: Catalan literature, translation, fiction, Mercè Rodoreda, La Plaça del Diamant.
