The intimate Barcelona of Colometa and Cecília Ce

Autors/ores

  • Roxana Nadim Universitat de València

Resum

Mercè Rodoreda tells the story of Barcelona through Colometa and Cecília Ce in her novels La plaça del Diamant (2002 [1962]) and El carrer de les Camèlies (2007 [1966]). The former is a republican and the latter is a prostitute; both are impoverished and form part of the vanquished, whose names are not mentioned in the history books. Rodoreda uses these characters to write the silent history of women and the marginalised, without idealising or mythologising them, thus showing us a Barcelona which too often remains anonymous.
