abstract

Narcís Comadira (Girona 1942 – ) started his studies in the monastery of Montserrat in the sixties but abandoned his religious career and became one of the youngest Catalans to join the then newly born Assemblea de Catalunya the activities of which extended over the period 1971-1977, escaping the claustrophobia of Franco’s Spain by going abroad as a Spanish Lector at Queen Mary’s College in London between 1971 and 1973, and thus discovering new ways of thinking and living. This paper explores Comadira’s personal, political and poetic development from 1970 to the years of the Spanish transition to Democracy.
