The novel has had many subsequent editions.Ernesto Biester (Lisbon, 1829-Lisbon, 1880), literary critic, journalist, dramatist, and impresario of the Teatro Naiconal D. Maria II in Lisbon, participated in a group of young intellectuals at the University of Coimbra which included Tomás Ribeiro and Pinheiro Chagas. He received help at the beginning of his career from Antonio Feliciano de Castilho, Teófilo Braga, Antero Quental, and José de Castro. During the 1860s and 1870s Biester was instrumental in creating the "drama de actualidade" in Portugal, which supplanted historical drama and pure melodrama, focusing on social themes and class conflict.*** Sousa da Câmara 323. The present work not cited in Innocêncio (the two volumes which treat the author were published prior to the appearance of the present work): see II, 229-30; IX, 174-6.
