Reeds and Mud (Cañas y barro) is a novel written by the Spanish writer Vicente Blasco Ibáñez in 1902, and set in rural Valencia (the Albufera) of the early twentieth century. The novel observes and portrays the social reality of the time and place with absolute precision, also counting on traditional nuances.
This story is part of the “Valencian cycle” where a strong regionalist component is mixed with features of naturalism, especially with regard to the determinism of the environment in which the characters live.
All his Valencian novels that belong to this cycle:

  • Rice and Tartana (1894),
  • May Flower (1895),
  • The Barrack (1898),
  • Among Orange Trees (1900)
  • and Reeds and Mud (1902),

they were written day by day to be published in the brochure of El Pueblo, a newspaper directed by the young Blasco Ibáñez.
What is really valuable about these works is the portrait of the life and customs of the inhabitants of their land and especially of the rural area. Where the inhabitants of the Valencian orchard and the Albufera appear drawn with their virtues and their defects, their customs and their quarrels.
Cañas y barro offers a stark vision of human relationships in a natural environment in which irrationality reigns, and ambitions are resolved in tragedy. In their struggle for life, three generations of the same family will face misery with very different attitudes.
