Víctor Català

Biography

Víctor Català was born Caterina Albert i Paradís in L’Escala in 1869. Her parents were landed gentry. Her first publication was at the age of fourteen when she published love poems in Almanach de l’Esquella de la Torratxa. She published further poems, including one called La Infanticida which caused considerable scandal, particularly when it was realised that it was written by a woman. As a result she adopted the male pseudonym of Víctor Català, a name of a character in a novel she was writing (which she never finished). She had considerable success with her first novel Solitud (Solitude), which has become a classic of Catalan literautre. She only published one more novel but produced numerous stories, as well as poems and other short prose pieces. She stopped publishing at the start of the Spanish Civil war and only resumed in 1944. She died in 1966.
