9780198158813: History and Fiction in Galdós's Narratives

Benito Pérez Galdós (1843-1920) is generally recognized as Spain's greatest novelist since Cervantes. This is a wide-ranging exploration of the role of contemporary Spanish history in Galdós's fiction. The author also examines Galdós's treatment of historical themes in relation to such significant European writers as Tolstoy and Balzac. This is a major work of Galdós scholarship and an important contribution to the continuing debates concerning the complex relationship between history and fiction.

Review:


"There have been many important new books on Galdos recently, but few will stand the test of time as well as Geoffrey Ribbans's latest effort....[An] exemplary work of scholarship....Readers will not only learn a great deal about the relationship between history and fiction, but will also find an exhaustive survey of all the latest critical approaches to Galdos's narratives."--Hispania


"Ribbans is an outstanding authority on the 19th-century Spanish novelist Benito Perez Galdos. This volume is an excellent example of a critical study that deals with the relations between history and fiction....Ribbans shows an almost complete mastery of material that deals with literary theory, history of 19th-century Spain, and the vast literature concerning Galdos."--Choice
