In writing this brief history of Catalan literature, I have tried to bear in mind the needs of the non-specialist reader with some knowledge of Spanish who wishes to know more about an important but, on the whole, neglected area of Peninsular culture. Where English readers are concerned, the task, unfortunately, is long overdue: in a recent and otherwise excellent literary encyclopedia, the whole of Catalan literature is allotted the same amount of space as Jean-Paul Sartre, and this seems characteristic of a situation which few specialists as yet have tried to alter. The chief barrier, of course, is linguistic: yet it is not difficult to acquire at least a reading knowledge of Catalan, and for reasons which are given in Chapter 1, the older literature is relatively accessible to a modern reader compared, say, with that of France or Spain. This accessibility gives an impression of coherence to the entire range of Catalan literature which is reinforced to a great extent by social and historical tendencies. Roughly speaking, Catalan literature follows a recognizable European pattern, with one notable exception: the fact that its course is interrupted for something like three centuries by what is usually known as the period of "Decadence" (see Chapter 2). To see why this should be so demands an awareness of certain historical facts, and these in turn point to the close interpenetration of literature and society which is evident in most phases of Catalan culture. Both the 19th-century revival and the more conscious programs of noucentisme in the 20th are attempts to create a new national identity, a task which has lost none of its urgency in the years since the Spanish Civil War. - Preface
Seventeenth-century Spanish poetry : the power of artifice by Arthur Terry( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comprehensive study in English of one of the most important bodies of verse in European literature. Seventeenth-century Spanish poetry represents the culmination of a rich Renaissance tradition, and Professor Terry sets out to make this accessible not only to Hispanists but to readers of English, French and Italian poetry, with which it had many points of contact. He deals both with the major poets - Gongora, Lope de Vega, Quevedo, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz - and with the impressively large number of good minor poets, from the Argensolas to Bocangel and Soto de Rojas, whose work is still relatively little read. Drawing upon recent developments in literary criticism as well as paying close attention to individual poems, the book discusses a wide range of issues including the re-working of classical and Renaissance models, the importance of rhetoric, and the relationship between author, poem and reader."--Jacket
A companion to Catalan literature by Arthur Terry( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the only one of its kind in English. Part literary history, part literary criticism, it is above all a personal assessment of a rich and important body of work which is still not widely known outside Catalonia. Catalan literature, one of the three major Peninsular literatures, reached an impressive level of excellence in the middle ages, beginning with Ramon Llull and the chronicles, and culminating in the two great fifteenth-century writers, the poet Ausias March and Joanot Martorell, the author of Tirant lo Blanc, one of the land-marks in early prose fiction." "The book does not presuppose any knowledge of Catalan; all quotations and book titles are translated, and a list of works translated into English is included."--Jacket

Women and days = Les dones i els dies by Gabriel Ferrater( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and Catalan and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Catalan poet, Gabriel Ferrater, is a poet of personal experience, a poet who succeeds like no other in capturing the feeling of Catalan society both during and since the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). Because he came to poetry relatively late (he was 38 when his first collection was published), he was able to draw on a body of experience which was not available to younger poets." "Ferrater's poetry is presented in this volume in a translation by Arthur Terry whose affinity with the poet is not only declared in his translator's preface but is also self-evident from the powerful poetic 'voice' he creates in English."--BOOK JACKET
