An attempt at exhausting a place: Barcelona University Square

Abstract

Emulating the work by Georges Perec on the Saint-Suplice square, this article presents the University of Barcelona square as the backdrop for three different literary works whose fictional plots help us to revaluate the social characteristics of the city. Based on the analysis of certain chapters from Nada, by Carmen Laforet, Maletes perdudes, by Jordi Puntí, and Puja a casa, by Jordi Nopca we can see the evolution of the space in relation to the expectations of Barcelona's youth during the grey postwar period, the 1960s and the absence of the social revolutions and the globalisation associated with the economic crisis of the beginning of the 21st century.
