In the writing of Benito Perez Galdós, Spains most prolific and innovative nineteenth-century novelist, Hazel Gold finds this principle insistently at work. By exploring Galdóss methods of structuring and evaluating literary and historical experience, Gold illuminates the novelists art and uncovers the far-reaching narratological, social, and epistemological implications of his framing strategies.A close look at Galdóss novels reveals the artist at pains to contain and interpret what he perceived to be the distinctive and often disheartening experience of bourgeois liberalism of his day.

At the same time, he can be seen here undermining or negating the accepted conventions of realist fiction. Looking beyond text to context, Gold examines the ways in which Galdóss work itself has been framed by readers and critics in accordance with changing allegiances to contemporary literary theory and the canon.The highly ambiguous status of the frame in Galdóss fictions confirms the authors own signal position as a writer poised at the limits between realism and modernity.

Golds work will command the interest of students of Spanish and comparative literature, narrative theory, and the novel, as well as all those for whom realism and representation are at issue.
