About the Author: Benito Pérez Galdós

Benito Pérez Galdós (May 10, 1843 – January 4, 1920) was a Spanish realist novelist. Some authorities consider him second only to Cervantes in stature as a Spanish novelist. He was the leading literary figure in 19th century Spain.

Galdós was a prolific writer, publishing 31 novels, 46 Episodios Nacionales (National Episodes), 23 plays, and the equivalent of 20 volumes of shorter fiction, journalism and other writings. He remains popular in Spain, and galdosistas (Galdós researchers) considered him Spain's equal to Dickens, Balzac and Tolstoy. As recently as 1950, few of his works were available translated to English, although he has slowly become popular in the Anglophone world.

While his plays are generally considered to be less successful than his novels, Realidad (1892) is important in the history of realism in the Spanish theatre.

Sátira implacable del Madrid burocrático de la época, Miau -publicada en 1888- es una de las grandes novelas de Benito Pérez Galdós (1843-1920). Precedida de una penetrante introducción de Ricardo Gullón, en ella, los diversos hilos argumentales del complejo relato que narra la progresiva caída de Villaamil, arquetipo del cesante, son anudados con mano maestra y desembocan en un final esperpéntico, a la vez trágico y caricaturesco.
