Taking as a point of departure Gaziel’s diary written in Paris at the beginning of the war, the article focuses on a variety of responses to the war by Catalan writers. The Great War was marked since the beginning by powerful intellectual discussions. My goal here is to study the various forms of reaction to the Great War and how it was explained to contemporaries through prose fiction, memoirs, essays and journalism or poetry in a representative sample of texts by Rusiñol, Agustí Calvet ‘Gaziel,’ Apel·les Mestres and Joan Pérez-Jorba.
