Description

Benito Pérez Galdós is one of the most prolific Spanish writers of all time. He is remembered for his Episodios Nacionales, a series of 46 historical novels, and this work, Fortunata and Jacinta. This novel is, along La Regenta, the best representative of Spanish literary realism. In essence, it’s a critique of the rising middle class. Fortunata is a low-class woman, while Jacinta is the wife of the wealthy Juanito. However, the plot gets complicated when Juanito sleeps with Fortunata and disappears leaving her pregnant. The novel is long and has many characters, so make sure you are hungry for a complex story before reading it.
