Sobre el concepte de realisme i realisme històric

Àlex Broch


Starting from the relationship between literature and reality, this essay provides a reflection of the concept of realism and its different understandings and positionings in contemporary literature.

Finally, and in relation to Catalan literature, this essay analyzes the historical realism of the 1960s.
