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.

La de Bringas está considerada, junto con La Regenta de Clarín, como una de las mejores novelas del siglo XIX español y es una especie de Madame Bovary. Cuenta la historia de una mujer de la burguesía española con buenas relaciones sociales -el marido forma parte de la burocracia de Palacio- pero con problemas económicos. Esta situación la lleva a endeudarse y al adulterio. Una vez más, Galdós narra los problemas de la clase media madrileña y todas las implicaciones que supone el desfase entre su realidad y sus deseos de ascenso social. Su protagonista, la de Bringas, es una personaje inolvidable: frente al marido pusilánime, ella carga con el peso familiar y mueve los hilos sociales para no perder su posición. Necesita comprar ropa para ella y su hija, necesita mantener una buena apariencia y por eso recurre al crédito.
