This book, written as an investigation on the authorship of Tirant Lo Blanc, opens a new ground of debate on one of the most controversial aspects of medieval Catalan literature. Based on the previous hypothesis of an intervention by Joan Roís Martorell, the itinerary of the search ends by attributing to the first, the most important literary of Valencia in the second half of the 15th century, the full authorship of the novel. Martorell, an old gentleman eager to relate adventures, would have been the informer of a young writer, Corella, who would write the book under the protection and patronage of Martí Joan de Galba. This thesis derives, thus, from a rereading of the historical data and the philosophical studies available and, above all, the rigorous application of the paremiological and phraseological method. This way, one can offer a systematic vision of the many textual concordances between Tiran and known work of Corella, an evidence that, as the author of the study argues, it is explained admitting that this ecclesiastic and poet would be also the most outstanding novelist of our classics. In any case, despite the different opinions that this innovation thesis may arouse, there is no doubt that it forces us to rethink the problem of Tirant Lo Blanc’s authorship from a more open perspective.
