The letters of a wounded and angry Rodoreda


Mercè Rodoreda and Anna Murià became friends at the end of the Civil War, when they went into exile and lived for ten months with a group of other Catalan writers – Pere Calders, Francesc Trabal, Pere Quart …– and their families in the castle of Roissy. It was there that Rodoreda and Armand Obiols fell in love. The same happened to Murià and Agustí Bartra. While the relationship of the latter was long and quite idyllic, however, that of Rodoreda and Obiols was dramatic and controversial: he was married to a sister of Trabal and therefore many of his colleagues are they turned against her. Murià was one of the few who maintained the friendship. When Murià left for Latin America and Rodoreda chose to stay in France, they corresponded for years.
