"Don Faustino Lopez de Mendoza, scion of an illustrious but impoverished family of the highest nobility, believes himself destined for great accomplishments in the literary world, sees himself as a poet of the first rank, and immerses himself in grand, if not grandiose, illusions. While living in a provincial Andalusian town and dreaming of triumphing in Madrid's artistic circles, Faustino embarks on a discovery of love with three women. How he extricates himself from each relationship and meets his sad end constitutes the denouement of this searching novel that depicts the deleterious effects of the Romantic malaise that swept through western Europe in the early part of the nineteenth century."--BOOK JACKET

Juan Valera y Alcalá Galiano; Cabra, 1824 - Madrid, 1905) Escritor y crítico español cuya obra se inscribe en una corriente esteticista opuesta al realismo naturalista. Político y diplomático, fue un hombre culto y refinado, cuyo hedonismo no estuvo desvinculado de sus numerosas aventuras amorosas e incluso de su tardío y desgraciado matrimonio con Dolores Delavart, a la que doblaba en edad. Se inició como teórico literario con Ensayos literarios (1844), libro que fue destruido casi en su totalidad, y con críticas y recensiones en diversos diarios y revistas españoles e hispanoamericanos.En éstos también escribió cuentos y novelas por entrega, pero su entrada definitiva en la narrativa se produjo tardíamente, cuando dio a conocer Pepita Jiménez (1874), la novela española más popular del siglo XIX, en la que, no obstante sus notas costumbristas y su temática amorosa de corte romántico, concretó literariamente sus posturas antirrealistas, sus inquietudes formales, y su voluntad de definir una prosa y un estilo depurados.Más tarde dio a conocer Las ilusiones del doctor Faustino (1875), publicada por entregas, El comendador Mendoza (1877), Pasarse de listo (1878), Doña Luz (1879), y tras un largo paréntesis y ya afectado por una progresiva ceguera, Juanita la larga (1896), también publicada anteriormente por entregas, y Morsamor (1899). Su dominio de una depurada técnica narrativa le permitió valerse de recursos expresivos que ampliaron los registros temáticos de sus novelas, consideradas en sí mismas "cuentos rosas" por algunos críticos
