EL DIETARI DE PERE GIMFERRER, UNA CRUÏLLA D’ESCRIPTURES

Catalan Review (2003), 17, (2), 87–106.

Abstract

In this paper we provide an approach to the literary prose that Pere Gimferrer builds in the two volumes of his Dietari. We distinguish and characterize different tendencies that coexist and merge in his writing. We study how the author flirts with the narration from the essay, turns aside the paths of description and presentation of situations and characters (narrative prose), and rushes through the stream of lyrics (poetic prose), all without forgetting the exposition of the intellectual’s thoughts and opinions. At last, the richness, experimentation, and total freedom that singularize Pere Gimferrer’s literature emerge.
