This concluding chapter analyses the ongoing relevance and significance of literature and identity for Catalan culture today. Wrapping up the volume, it addresses three new issues that require closer attention: (i) the role of popular fiction in constructing cultural identities; ii) the position of small literatures like Catalan literature within the World Republic of Letters; and iii) the unresolved and ongoing debate about the position of Catalans who write in Castilian within Catalan culture.
