Galdos has been called the Balzac or Dickens of Spain, and "Fortunata and Jacinta" (1887) is his masterpiece. Set in Madrid between 1868 and 1875, it treats both political tumult and personal obsession, telling the story of two women who love the same man - one his mistress and the other his wife.

Benito Perez Galdos (1843-1920) Novelist and playwright, born in Las Palmas, Canary Is, Spain. Regarded as Spain's greatest novelist after Cervantes, his 46 short Episodios nacionales (National Episodes) give a vivid picture of 19th-c Spain from the viewpoint of the people. Some of his longer novels have been translated, including Doña Perfecta (1876, trans 1886). His plays, many of them based on his novels, have also been successful.
