Abstract: La mort i la primavera is therefore a mythical novel. For this reason it has become universal, in the formulation of abstract worlds which allows the author's message to be interpreted on many intellectual levels. A society "without God", that constantly lives remembering the origins of the town, that strengthen the identity with the rites, it is a closed society that drowns the personal initiatives of its members. The cruelty of the human being, widespread in a repressive society, is expressed by the myth on a few bare pages that without doubt, draw the attention of the reader who is without defence. The Rodoreda's literature reaches in these pages a high level of interaction with the readers, so much so that she plays with them concious of the literary function.
