This study is a monographic analysis of Mercè Rodoreda’s posthumous novel, La mort i la primavera, the work that has received the least critical attention. It is a fascinating and very complex novel, both because of the strange imaginary it presents and because of the diversity of drafting states that are preserved in the archives of the Fundació Mercè Rodoreda (IEC). It is an extremely enigmatic work and difficult to interpret that the author wrote in 1961, corrected until 1963 and since then the question has been raised as to whether she returned to it. In any case, shortly before she died, she had stated that she wanted to correct it and publish it. There are three different editions – from 1986, 1997 and 2008 – and the reissue of the first, which is from 2017. It was not until that year that it began to have a true echo in the Catalan literary field. Our research is based on two axes: on the one hand, the interpretation of such a beautiful and dark text, and on the other, understanding why it has been such a forgotten novel, even though Rodoreda herself considered it as what would be her masterpiece. We start from the hypothesis that reading this cruel novel collapse certain clichés associated with Rodoreda and that it allows us to reread his best-known work in a new light. Regarding the hermeneutical study, our main hypothesis is that Rodoreda dialogues aesthetically with ethnography and primitivism, very much in vogue in Paris in the first half of the 20th century ​
