“Doña Perfecta” by Benito Pérez Galdós & translation and introduction by Harriet de Onís

“Published in 1876, DOÑA PERFECTA is not only the novel by Benito Pérez Galdós (1843-1920) that aroused the most heated controversy, but also a highly representative work of his first creative stage. The conflict between the progressive and Europeanizing position of Pepe Rey - a young engineer who arrives in the episcopal city of Orbajosa with the intention of marrying Rosarito, his cousin and daughter of Doña Perfecta, a mainstay of Orbajon society - and the immobile attitude of a society attached to traditional beliefs and forms of existence constitutes the nucleus around which it is articulated.”
