A conservative Catalan nationalist, Narcís Oller was a member of the most important literary circles in Barcelona and he often met with people from the magazine, La Renaixença. Following the literary trends that were dominating Europe at the time, he wrote in the Realist and Naturalist styles, influenced mainly by Émile Zola.
