Plaza Diamante by Merce Rodoreda

Feminist readings of the novel have consistently claimed that the protagonist rejects motherhood, pointing to the hardship and frustration her children cause and the lack of affection she often expresses toward Toni and Rita. Despite the demands of institutionalized motherhood that often leave her frustrated, angry, and guilt-stricken, Colometa does not reject or even remain indifferent to her maternal role. Rather, she consistently engages in the maternal work that mothering entails and endeavors to act in the best interests of her children.

It is notable for its use of stream of consciousness. Arguably the author's most accomplished work, the novel has been translated into more than thirty languages and is regarded as one of the most important pieces of fiction in contemporary Catalan literature. It is also a staple of the curriculum in secondary school programs across Catalonia. Dealing with the Second Spanish Republic and the Spanish Civil War , the novel is set in Barcelona before, during and after the war and pictures a young woman's struggles in life as well as her conflictive relationships with two men, and her progression from nearly complete submission until she develops a full-fledged outlook in life, personal maturity and independence. It is also a faithful chronicle of life in the city at the time, in a balanced mixture of psychologism and naturalism. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
