  • Benito Perez Galdos and the Creative Processby Walter T. Pattison

    University of Minnesota Press 1954; US$ 67.50

    Most critics would rank Benito Perez Galdos second only to Cervantes among the great novelists of Spain. However, in spite of the esteem in which he is generally held, Galdos has been the subject of relatively few scholarly studies. Professor Pattison, by more...

  • Modelos dialógicos en la narrativa de Benito Pérez Galdósby Alicia G. Andreu

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1989; US$ 75.00

    Benito Perez Galdos sought a new narrative structure which would revitalize the literary models prevalent in 19th-century Spain. He found such a structure in the creation of a dialogue between normally incompatible texts — between old and new, national and foreign, high culture and low. From the confrontation of these incongruous texts a narrative... more...

  • Reading 'La Regenta'by Stephanie A. Sieburth

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1990; US$ 75.00

    Criticism of La Regenta has until recently focused on the text's plot as an extraordinarily coherent and convincing fictional world. Stephanie A. Sieburth demonstrates that the devices which produce order in the text are counterbalanced by an equally strong tendency toward entropy of meaning. The narrator is shown to be duplicitous and unreliable in... more...

  • Los mejores cuentos de Clarínby Leopoldo Alas Clarín

    De Vecchi Ediciones 2013; US$ 1.89

    Leopoldo Alas Ureña (Zamora, 1852 - Oviedo, 1901), conocido por el seudónimo de Clarín, cuenta con una extensa producción literaria, que lo ha convertido en uno de los representantes más destacados de la literatura realista española del siglo xix.

  • Galdosby Jo Labanyi

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 66.95

    Benito Perez Galdos has been described as 'the greatest Spanish novelist since Cervantes.' His work constitutes a major contribution to the nineteenth-century novel, rivalling that of Dickens of Balzac and making him an essential candidate for any course on the fiction of the period. Jo Labanyi's study is supported by a wide-rangting introduction,... more...

  • Galdós and the Irony of Languageby Diane F. Urey

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 33.00 US$ 27.06

    This clearly argued study, structuralist in approach and sensitive to nuances of style and language, will appeal to students of modern critical theory and comparative literature as well as to Hispanists. more...

  • Galdós: Fortunata and Jacintaby Harriet S. Turner

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 25.00 US$ 20.50

    A new critical introduction to Galdos' four-part masterpiece set in Madrid in the 1870s. more...

  • Miguel De Cervantesby Harold Bloom

    Infobase Publishing 2005; US$ 54.00

    Credited with having written one of the first "novels", Cerventes' masterwork Don Quixote continues to inspire and was recently released in a new translation. more...

  • Modernity's Metonymsby Geraldine Lawless

    Bucknell University Press 2011; US$ 94.99

    Modernity's Metonyms considers the representation of temporal frameworks in stories by two nineteenth-century Spanish authors: the canonical Leopoldo Alas and Antonio Ros de Olano, an author who is receiving increasing attention from scholars of nineteenth-century Spanish literature. These narratives are considered in terms of their treatment of three... more...
