Quinze anys de periodisme: les col·laboracions de J.V. Foix a La Publicitat (1922-1936)

15 anys de periodisme

The Institut d’Estudis Catalans has publied the book Quinze anys de periodisme: les col·laboracions de J. V. Foix a La Publicitat (1922-1936) by Pere Gómez i Inglada, that obtained the Lluís Nicolau d’Olwer Prize of Philology in 2007.

The study tries to be an approach to the intense journalist activity of J.V. Foix and to show the outstanding rol, almost exclusive, that it had in the publicist’s creative production, superior than the poetic creation. It also deals with Foix’s relation with Acció Catalana and the politic situation of that time.

The outbreak of the war and the impossibility of maintaining his journalist activity, from the freedom and in his mother tongue, caused him approaching other fields of his literary creation.
