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.
