History and fiction in Galdós's narratives by Geoffrey Ribbans( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galdos wrote prolifically in two distinct narrative modes: some twenty major 'contemporary novels' in the realist tradition and a special sort of historical novel he called the episodio nacional. The reign of Isabella II (1843-68) and the revolutionary period which followed until 1875 was a time of exceptional volatility in Spain, and Geoffrey Ribbans's comprehensive study shows how each of Galdos's two narrative modes adopts a particular technique in its treatment of Spanish history and politics. The episodio is tightly bound to historical events and timescale, though it skilfully incorporates its fictional characters into this framework; the novel on the other hand is embedded in historical reality in a constant but less systematic manner
Conflicts and conciliations : the evolution of Galdós's "Fortunata y Jacinta" by Geoffrey Ribbans( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1881 and 1897, Benito Perez Galdos, generally acknowledged as Spain's greatest nineteenth-century novelist, composed some twenty "contemporary" novels, which Geoffrey Ribbans characterizes as the peak of his achievement. This monumental study traces the evolution of the many strands that make up one of them: the long and complex novel Fortunata y Jacinta. Ribbans examines the various stages of composition, not only the earlier, reconstructed Alpha version but also subsequent revisions in the much corrected handwritten text as well as in the printer's galleys. He treats these tentative drafts not in isolation but as part of the process of reaching out toward the coherent definitive text
Campos de Castilla = The landscape of Castile by Antonio Machado( Book )

77 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written between 1907 and 1917, the poems address [Machado's] marriage and the death of his young wife from tuberculosis. Many of the poems were written in response to long walks he took in the countryside, and they capture the essence of the landscape and the people of Castile. Other poems address the postcolonial reality of Spain and give tribute to the writers, thinkers and poets of his country."--Back cover
