Joaquim Ruyra’s route
This literary route serves as an introduction, inviting visitors to explore his complete works if they have not already done so.
Joaquim Ruyra obtained great literary success with his debut Marines i boscatges (Seascapes and Woodland Scenes) (1903), a collection of 15 short stories featuring the sea and the people whose lives revolved around it. His other two great works of prose were La Parada (The Trap) (1919) and Entre flames (Among Flames) (1928). He republished Marines i boscatges in 1920, having corrected its linguistic errors, and the book was rechristened as Pinya de Rosa (The End Knot). This new version also included an additional story entitled L’idil·li d’en Temme (Temme’s Idyll), set in Sa Forcanera Cove. Several spots and characters in Blanes inspired Ruyra, finding their way into his stories.
