One of the defining texts of twentieth-century Catalan fiction, written by one of its most innovative and cherished writers, Salvador Espriu’s Ariadne in the Grotesque Labyrinth is a collection of thirty-four short stories in which the twists and turns of action, character, and place are as winding and sumptuous as the legendary maze of its title. Originally published in 1935 in the midst of great countrywide political and social upheaval, these stories are a mirror, a grotesque mirror, held up to Catalan and Spanish society as they face the increasingly complicated challenges of the modern world with the haunting echoes of the ancient still surrounding them. Beautifully infused with a deep sense of mythic power, social realism, and lush modernist experimentation, Ariadne in the Grotesque Labyrinth is a triumph of Espriu's singular style.
