About this ebook

En La Fontana de Oro la acción transcurre en la ciudad de Madrid durante los años del Trienio Constitucional (1820 — 1823). Toma su título del café situado cerca de la Puerta del Sol que, con ese mismo nombre, sirvió de lugar de reunión a artistas y tribuna oratoria para políticos liberales. El eje sentimental de la trama narra la pasión amorosa entre Lázaro, joven romántico y liberal, y Clara, huérfana en casa de un tío de ideología absolutista y carácter intransigente.

Benito Perez Galdos

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.
