Abstract

Summary: Published in 1917, the novel La “Niña Gorda” by Santiago Rusiñol is one of the few Catalan novels dedicated to the representation of monsters. Conceived as an anti-model of two literary topics, the bovarysm and the “Ben Plantada”, the fiction is a reaction against a series of topics of Eugeni d’Ors’ discourse. Rusiñol uses a direct and realist language, a sense of antiidealist humour and the creation of an “imaginary circus” (that was used by Rusiñol at the end of the XIXth century). La “Niña Gorda” is a transition fiction, written between the “Noucentist” period and the development of the Avant-garde. [Keywords: Catalan narrative; humour; monster; Modernism; Noucentism]
