A History of Catalan Folk Literature is the fruit of a collaborative effort between fifteen researchers from various universities and research centres who have joined forces to create a broader study of Catalan folk literature that addresses the Catalan linguistic and cultural territories in their entirety.
Since the thirteenth century, Catalan culture has created a rich and abundant literary legacy, and since the mid-nineteenth century this has been complemented by a tradition of folklore studies that remains very much alive today. Within this comparatively recent discipline, folk literature has played a particularly important role.
The book presents the evolution of Catalan folk literature studies in each of the areas that make up the Catalan linguistic and cultural territories referred to above. The period considered stretches from the mid-nineteenth century, when the beginnings of a scientific interest in folklore emerged across Europe, to the present day.

Table of Contents
“The text provides an overwhelming richness of information, a vast body of research materials contained in an abundance of publications of an astonishing number of known and unknown folklorists.”
“This book is a comprehensive analysis of Catalan folklore research, its history, its scholars and the theoretical and ideological issues that motivated it.”
“Obwohl früher bereits einige wissenschaftsgeschichtliche Studien zur katalanischen Volksliteratur erschienen sind, so stellt dieses Buch mit einer kompakten Darstellung der Volksliteratur doch alle bisherigen Versuche in den Schatten. Die Geschichte der katalanischen Volksliteratur stellt sich würdig zu bereits vorliegenden Darstellungen aus anderen europäischen Sprach- und Kulturgebieten.”
