Doña Perfecta. by Benito Pérez Galdós( Book )

528 editions published between 1876 and 2017 in 17 languages and held by 3,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Benina, a 60 year-old servant begs secretly to keep her mistress fed. Crushed by poverty or the weight of their pretensions, the high and low life of 19th century Madrid provides the cast for this enjoyably bleak portrait of a family's decline, fall and recovery. The widow Dona Francisca, reduced from salon to slum, is protected by her servant Benita, who begs and barters in a daily battle with starvation and her mistress's pride. When a sudden inheritance enriches the old crow, Benita is cast aside. Galdos's Spain teems with saints and sinners, corrupted as much by poverty as by wealth

Benito Pérez Galdós, one of the most sophisticated and delightful of the great European novelists, was a clear-eyed, compassionate, and not-a-little amused observer of the confusions, delusions, misrepresentations, and perversions of the mind and heart.

No creas; se necesita cabeza, porque es una liornia de mil demonios la que armamos. El editor dice: "Ido, imaginación volcánica: tres cabezas en una". Y es verdad. Al acostarme, hijo, siento en mi cerebro ruidos como los de una olla puesta al fuego ... Y por la calle cuando salgo a distraerme, voy pensando en mis escenas y en mis personajes. Todas las iglesias se me antojan Escoriales, y los serenos corchetes, y las capas esclavinas. Cuando me enfado, suelto de la boca los pardiezes sin saber lo que digo, y en vez de un carape, se me escapa aquello de ¡Con cien mil de a caballo! A lo mejor, a mi Nicanora la llamo Doña Sol o Doña Mencía. Me duermo tarde; despierto riéndome y digo: "Ya, ya sé por dónde va a salir el que se hundió en la trampa". (Con exaltación que pone en cuidado a Felipe.) Porque has de saber, amiguito, que hay una mina muy larga, hecha por los moros, la cual pone en comunicación la casa del Platero, vivienda de Antonio Pérez, con el convento de religiosas carmelitas calzadas de la Santísima Pasión de Pinto -- Provided by the publisher

Zaragoza by Benito Pérez Galdós( Book )

200 editions published between 1874 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Román zachycuje důležitý úsek bojů španělského lidu proti dobyvatelským vojskům Napoleonovým. Historickým podkladem je dvojí obléhání aragonského města na řece Ebru - v r. 1808 a 1809. Autor oslovuje hrdou obranu otevřeného města a zdůrazňuje charakteristické rysy protinapoleonského odboje: vlastenectví, náboženský ráz povstání s falešnou představu krále jako symbolu svobodné vlasti. Na řadě románových postav, jako jsou José Montoria, strýc Gracés, historicky doložená postava Manuely Sanchové a j., ukázal hrdinství a bojovnost zaragozských občanů. Přestože román končí porážkou, nevyznívá pesimisticky ; výsledek obléhání Zaragozy je hodnocen nikoli jako prohra, ale jako úsek boje o zachování národní svébytnosti a krok ke konečnému vítězství
