Lecturer Pujol Valls provides a tour of Vallverdú's work
Faculty of Education Lecturer Maria Pujol Valles recently published a new book about the author of Rovelló.In it, Pujol critiques the works that best represent the various genres Vallverdú covered over the course of his career from an artistic and historical point of view.
The book stems from the author's desire to "disseminate my thesis and publish it", since Pujol based her doctoral thesis on Vallverdú's work. However, she goes on to say that the book "is of general interest, not strictly academic".
The book is intended for "scholars and people interested in contemporary Catalan literature and culture", says the author. It is also the second monograph published about Josep Vallverdú. Yet while Josep Vallverdú, l'escriptor i l'home (Josep Vallverdú, the Writer and the Man) is highly biographical, Professor Pujol's book is more concerned with analysing the work of this Lleida-born writer.
