Pell De Brau

by Espriu

Pell De Brau Synopsis

La pell de brau has been called the most important book to appear in Spain in the 1960s. Grappling with themes of national, racial, and cultural identity, its frankness exhilarated and inspired the younger generation of artists to speak out on social and political issues. The Oxford Companion to Spanish Literature said of Burton Raffel's translation: He has created an Espriu equally valid in English, a monument to a Catalan writer of world stature.
