A broken mirror = Mirall trencat by Mercè Rodoreda( Book )

In its moment of great splendour the novel was held as a mirror of society: Merce Rodoreda shatters that mirror in this, her most ambitious novel, which tells its story in brilliant fragments, a vision reflected and refracted and finally coming together in a richly articulated mosaic of life. Through this "Broken Mirror," the reader sees events and characters spanning three generations and composing a kaleidoscopic family history ranging over six decades and turning upon events both intimate and historic--most notably the Spanish Civil War. Opening with Teresa Goday, the lovely young fishmonger's daughter married to a wealthy old man, the story shifts from one perspective to another, reflecting from myriad angles the founding of a matriarchal dynasty and its eventual, seemingly inevitable disintegration. A family saga extending from the prosperous Barcelona of the 1870s to the advent of the Franco dictatorship, "A Broken Mirror" is finally also a novel about the inexorable passing of time
War, so much war by Mercè Rodoreda( Book )

56 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite its title, there is little of war and much of the fantastic in this coming-of-age story, which was the last novel Mercè Rodoreda published during her lifetime. We first meet its young protagonist, Adrià Guinart, as he is leaving Barcelona out of boredom and a thirst for freedom, embarking on a long journey through the backwaters of a rural land, accompanied by the interminable, distant rumblings of an indefinable war. In vignette-like chapters and a narrative style imbued with the fantastic, Guinart meets with numerous adventures and peculiar characters who offer him a surrealistic view of an impoverished, war-ravaged society and shape his perception of his place in the world"--Page 4 of cover

Jardín junto al mar : novela by Mercè Rodoreda( Book )

55 editions published between 1975 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sechs Sommer lang beobachtet der Gärtner eines Herrenhauses über dem Meer das Kommen und Gehen seiner wohlhabenden, jungverheirateten Besitzer Francesc und Rosamaria. Sie empfangen ihre Clique aus Barcelona, fahren Wasserski, feiern ausgelassene Partys und leben einen von ihren Bediensteten beneideten Sommernachtstraum. Doch dem Gärtner entgehen die feinen Risse nicht, die das scheinbare Idyll bei jedem Besuch deutlicher zeichnen. Weshalb wirkt die Leidenschaft des Paares mit einem Mal gespielt? Wird Francesc, der seiner Frau bis dahin treu ergeben war, nun doch empfänglich für die Avancen des brasilianischen Dienstmädchens? Als auf dem benachbarten Anwesen ein mysteriöses Paar eine noch grössere Villa errichtet und noch extravagantere Feste feiert, legt sich endgültig ein Schatten über die heile Welt am Meer: Der neue Nachbar ist niemand anderes als Rosamarias Jugendliebe Eugeni. Mit ihrem Roman "Auf der Plaça del Diamant" (1962) gelangte die katalanische Autorin Mercè Rodoreda zu Weltruhm. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, dass "Der Garten über dem Meer" in Deutschland bisher unentdeckt blieb. Rodoreda entwirft darin ein stimmungsvolles Bild der späten Zwanzigerjahre in Spanien und erschafft einen Kosmos, in dem man den grossen Gatsby als Gast auf jeder Cocktailparty vermutet.

La mort i la primavera by Mercè Rodoreda( Book )

43 editions published between 1986 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La mort i la primavera, és la novel·la que Rodoreda volia convertir en la seva obra mestra, i la més autobiogràfica de totes les que va escriure sota la seva aparença fantàstica. Els grans temes rodoredians -l'amor que neix i mor, l'afany de llibertat que topa amb la repressió, la solitud davant la meravella del món, el talent dels homes per convertir la vida en un infern- s'hi despleguen amb més esplendor i més horror que mai. En un lloc sense nom i en una època indeterminada, aïllat enmig d?una natura inquietant, viu un poble sotmès a una llei rigorosa que vetlla per destruir tota forma de desig. Un noi de catorze anys, en el moment de fer-se home, comença a rebel·lar-se i sembra sense voler la llavor d'una guerra civil. Real com un contes de fades modern, 'La mort i la primavera' és un llibre sobre la sedició i el testament d'una escriptora que va posar la seva llibertat per damunt de tot
