"Benitez Perez Galdos (1843-1920) was a prolific Spanish realist novelist, who through a lack of good translationsis virtually unknown outside Spain, though he has been compared as second only to Cervantes in Spanish literature and whose work is considered to give the deepest, truest, most comprehensive realities of Spain. Dona Perfecta (1876) was Galdos' first novel delving into the social world of middle-class Spain in the 19th century; a young liberal arrives in an imaginary cathedral city, with the intention of marrying his cousin. However the church interferes and obstructs the marriage, leading to a tragic clash between the traditional, provincial outlook and modern, liberal outlook of Madrid. Graham Whittaker's edition with Spanish text, English translation and substantial introduction aims to make this important novel widely available in English and the introduction and notes provide a comprehensive overview of the novel and Galdos' work."--Jacket

Cádiz es la octava novela de la primera serie de los Episodios Nacionales de Benito Pérez Galdós. El protagonista, el militar Gabriel de Araceli, es trasladado a la guarnición de Cádiz, donde narra sus dificultades para acceder al amor de Inés y los celos que le provoca la presencia de lord Gray. Paralelamente, Gabriel de Araceli nos hace una narración de las diferentes tendencias de la sociedad, mezcladas con personajes de ficción y protagonistas históricos. Cádiz es el baluarte fundamental de la resistencia frente a los franceses, pero también el hogar del nuevo gobierno español sin Rey y de las diferentes tendencias que surgen en la sociedad. También es la síntesis de una nueva España en la que se pugna por el deseo de reformar las instituciones, mientras que otros luchan por mantenerlas intactas y por el regreso del príncipe Fernando. En la obra también asistimos a algunas sesiones de las Cortes
