Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, the point is that there is Spanish Literature (which appropriates Catalan-language classics going all the way back to the medieval Tirant Lo Blanc), Literature in Spanish (which includes all of Hispanic American literature), Catalan Literature, and Literature in Catalan. It is indeed somewhat perverse to exclude authors like Juan Marsé (e.g., ironically, El Amante Bilingüe), Manuel Vázques Montalbán or Eduardo Mendoza from "Catalan Literature".
