Silent Souls and Other Stories Paperback / softback
Edited by Kathleen McNerney
Part of the Texts and Translations series
Caterina Albert i Paradis (1869-1966) began her career with a scandal.
Her dramatic monologue ""The Infanticide,"" delivered by a young woman, won prizes and garnered the attention of the Catalan literary world, but its harsh theme drew outrage when the anonymous author was revealed to be a woman.
In the tradition of George Eliot, George Sand, and other controversial women authors, Albert had assumed a man's name, Victor Catala.
She continued to write unflinching narratives, mostly in Catalan, of the people and life around her, producing a body of work still enlisted today to help the Catalan language resist the dominance of Peninsular Spanish.
