Love and adultery are at the center of Benito Pérez Galdós’s fiction. In this course we will examine these themes in relation to competing notions of gender and sexuality, as well as the formation of the bourgeois family. We will couple our study of the novel with medical literature, religious texts, illustrated magazines, and domestic manuals.
