This preamble serves to introduce the texts of two great writers and splendid storytellers who made Mallorca their home. Anceu a l’orta dels oranges, one of the Mallorcan tales and prologue to the book El vellocino de oro by Robert Graves and the Fábula del poeta a la illa, by Camilo José Cela. Free, complex, particular characters with a great worldwide projection for their literary quality and great sensitivity in showing the uncertainties of human existence and the truth of the poet possessed by the muse. In addition to being wonderful writings, it highlights the temperament of the Mallorcans and the weight that the matriarchy has had on the islands.
To fable is to invent wonderful things
