About this ebook

Situada en el castizo Chamberí, uno de los barrios del ensanche del Madrid decimonónico, la novela presenta un mórbido triángulo amoroso entre una mujer, un viejo —que confunde honor y provecho— y un 'artista'. Al morir su madre, la huérfana Tristana es recogida por un amigo de la familia, don Lope, que acabará convirtiéndose en su tutor-seductor. La joven protagonista se rebela ante tan humillante situación y al poco conoce y se enamora de Horacio, un pintor de ideas tradicionales que no acepta el espíritu feminista de Tristana. El pintor tiene que ausentarse de Madrid durante una larga temporada y la relación se enfría (aunque en Tristana sigue viva en un Horacio idealizado). Abordando el tema de la emancipación de la mujer en la sociedad española de finales del siglo XIX, Tristana profundiza en el mundo conflictivo físico y emocional de "una mujer que no quiere ser ni amante ni esposa".​

Author

Benito Pérez Galdós

Benito Pérez Galdós (1843-1920) was a Spanish novelist. Born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, he was the youngest of ten sons born to Lieutenant Colonel Don Sebastián Pérez and Doña Dolores Galdós. Educated at San Agustin school, he travelled to Madrid to study Law but failed to complete his studies. In 1865, Pérez Galdós began publishing articles on politics and the arts in La Nación. His literary career began in earnest with his 1868 Spanish translation of Charles Dickens’ Pickwick Papers. Inspired by the leading realist writers of his time, especially Balzac, Pérez Galdós published his first novel, La Fontana de Oro (1870). Over the next several decades, he would write dozens of literary works, totaling 31 fictional novels, 46 historical novels known as the National Episodes, 23 plays, and 20 volumes of shorter fiction and journalism. Nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature five times without winning, Pérez Galdós is considered the preeminent author of nineteenth century Spain and the nation’s second greatest novelist after Miguel de Cervantes. Doña Perfecta (1876), one of his finest works, has been adapted for film and television several times.
