    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...

  • Verisimilitude: Realismus in den Spielfilmen Jim Jarmuschsby Simone Brandt

    Diplomica Verlag 2010; US$ 21.57

    Haben Independent- bzw. Autorenfilme ein höheres Potential eine wie auch immer geartete Wirklichkeit abzubilden als der klassische Hollywoodfilm? Was ist überhaupt Realismus im Spielfilm?

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

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1989; US$ 158.00

    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$ 158.00

    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

  • 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...
