Catalan literature on the web

The Catalan Literary Heritage Network presents the Catalan Literary Map (MLC) project of Espais Escrits (Written Spaces). The aim of this project is to stimulate the knowledge of Catalan literature through information and communication technologies. The MLC of Written Spaces offers the possibility of discovering Catalan writers through a virtual and practical literary journey while consulting different parts of world geography with associated texts of Catalan literature. We suggest you to choose one Catalan author of this map and comment what you have learned about him or her.

To get a taste of some of the most significant Catalan writers during the Franco dictatorship, we suggest you take a look at the following links. Mercè Rodoreda; Salvador Espriu; Víctor Català (Caterina Albert); Joan Brossa; Eugeni d’Ors.
