Un viatge a l'infern: «Nit i boira» de Mercè Rodoreda

Maria Campillo

Resum


The story «Nit i boira» by Mercè Rodoreda is one of the first literary texts written
after the liberation of the German concentration camps. The author, who did not
experience the camps first hand, is able to capture their essential characteristics using two “fundamental” paradigms: death and hell, as Paul Celan and Primo Levi did during the same era.
