Mercè Rodoreda

Mercè Rodoreda Mercè Rodoreda i Gurguí (; 10 October 1908 – 13 April 1983) was a Spanish novelist, who wrote in Catalan.

She is considered the most influential contemporary Catalan language writer, as evidenced by the references of other authors in her work and the international repercussion, with translations into more than thirty languages.

She also has been called the most important Catalan female novelist of the postwar period. Her novel ''La plaça del diamant'' ('The diamond square', translated as ''The Time of the Doves'', 1962) has become the most popular Catalan novel to date and has been translated into over 30 languages. Some critics consider it to be one of the best novels published in Spain after the Spanish Civil War.

After her death, one more of her artistic aspects was discovered, painting, which had remained in the background due to the importance that Rodoreda gave to writing:
