Stages in the Development of a Feminist Consciousness in Benito Pérez Galdós (1843-1920): A Biographical Sketch
|Author: ||Condé, Lisa|
Explores the various stages in the evolution of Galdós' approach to the roles of women in society, leading to a breakthrough in his mature thought to a "feminist" perspective. Recently acknowledged by several critics, this phenomenon has not, as yet, been analyzed within the wider context of the writer's life and work. Traces Galdós' trajectory, illuminated where appropriate by manuscripts and correspondence now available in the Casa-Museo, and focuses on the roles of the real and fictional women affecting and reflecting this evolution.
