About the Author: Emilia Pardo Bazán

Emilia Pardo Bazán was a Galician author and scholar from Galicia. She is known for bringing naturalism to Spanish literature, for her detailed descriptions of reality, and for her role in feminist literature of her era.
Her first novel, Pascual López (1879), is a simple exercise in fantasy of no remarkable promise, though it contains good descriptive passages of romance. It was followed by a more striking story, Un viaje de novios (1881), in which a discreet attempt was made to introduce into Spain the methods of French realism. The book caused a sensation among the literary cliques, and this sensation was increased by the appearance of another naturalistic tale, La tribuna (1885), wherein the influence of Émile Zola is unmistakable. Meanwhile, the writer's reply to her critics was issued under the title of La cuestion palpitante (1883), a clever piece of rhetoric, but of no special value as regards criticism or dialectics.
The best of Emilia Pardo Bazán's work is embodied in Los pazos de Ulloa (1886), the painfully exact history of a decadent aristocratic family. A sequel, with the significant title of La madre naturaleza (1887), marks a further advance in the path of naturalism.
She was also a journalist, essayist and critic. She died in Madrid.

Londres, 1824, el relojero Dorff es asaltado por dos emboscados y recibe la ayuda de Renato de Giac, marqués de Brezé. Más tarde, ya en casa de Dorff, éste le entrega a Renato un manuscrito y un cofre con documentos importantísimos que los que están en el poder en Francia, Luis XVIII y su jefe de policía Lecazes, pretenden arrebatarle. La autora aborda por primera vez el género de la novela histórica mediante la recreación de la compleja historia de Luis XVII, el delfín perdido, el hijo de Luis XVI y María Antonieta. Asistiremos también a la intriga amorosa de Renato de Giac y Amelia, la hija mayor de Dorff. Este es un excepcional relato que aspira, como nos dice la autora en su novela, “a proyectar un rayo de luz en las lobregueces históricas por medio de la lámpara caprichosa de la fantasía”.
