About This Book

The prize-winning novelist Juan Marsé, born in Barcelona in 1933, is widely-read not only within Spain but also in translation, for his often provocative portrayals of life in post-war Barcelona. Clark's study discusses Marsé's engagement with Catholic popular culture, Spanish National Catholicism and Catalan Catholic Nationalism, exploring his subversion of iconic imagery as an ironic sub-textual commentary on political ideology, by which he is able to experiment with outer reality and inner reconstructions of experience. Dr Clark shows how religious and profane visions of love are subtly intertwined, how the tales told by children and the novel form itself are interrelated, and finally how a variety of biblical topoi, ranging from the Garden of Eden to the Song of Songs, are deployed in Marsé's fiction. Particular attention is paid to La oscura historia de la prima Montse, Si te dicen que ca and Im genes y recuerdos. ROSEMARY CLARK lectures in the department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Cambridge. El novelista Juan Marsé, nacido en Barcelona en 1933 y ganador de varios premios internacionales, es un autor muy leído no solamente en España sino también en otros países del mundo, a través de traducciones, y su obra se aprecia especialmente por sus descripciones provocativas de la vida cotidiana en la Barcelona de posguerra. La monografía de Clark analiza el profundo interés que sentía Marsé por la cultura popular católica y el nacionalcatolicismo - tanto en su forma española como en su forma catalana. Demuestra que la manera en que Marsé utiliza los íconos y las proyeciones visuales del Catolicismo constituye un comentario irónico y sutil sobre la ideología política de la época franquista. Las novelas de Marsé - especialmente La oscura historia de la prima Montse, Si te dicen que caí y Imágenes y recuerdos -- exploran los lindes entre la realidad objetiva y la reconstrucción sujetiva de aquella realidad en el mundo de la ficción.
