Synopsis: This book explores how notions of deviancy and social control are dramatized in the novels of the late nineteenth-century Spanish realist author Benito Pérez Galdós. Galdós?s treatment of prostitutes, alcoholics, beggars and vagrants is studied within the context of the socio-cultural and medical debates circulating during the period. Drawing on Foucault?s very specific conceptualization of the idea of control through discourses, the book analyzes how Galdós?s novels interacted with contemporary debates on poverty and deviancy ? notably, discourses on hygiene, domesticity and philanthropy. It is proposed that Galdós?s view of marginal social groups was much more open-minded, shrewd and liberal than the often inflexible pronouncements made by contemporary professional voices.

Book Description Liverpool University Press, Liverpool, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. First Paperback Edition. Explores how the notions of deviancy and social control are dramatized in the novels of the late-19th century Spanish author Benito Perez Galdos. A link is made between deviancy and "filth", a concept arising from the images of dirt, disease, immorality and disorder generated by social abnormality. Galdos's treatment of those groups of the population perceived as "deviant", in particular prostitutes, alcoholics, beggars and vagrants, is studied within the context of the socio-cultural and medical debates circulating during the period. The issue of deviancy is also examined in relation to gender, by looking at the different attitudes adopted by both Galdos and by social and moral commentators of the time towards certain kinds of male and female deviancy. Drawing on Foucault's very specific conceptualization of the idea of control through discourses, the book analyses how Galdos's novels interacted with contemporary debates on poverty and deviancy - notably, discourses on hygiene, domesticity and philanthropy. It is proposed that Galdos's view of the marginal social groups was much more open-minded, shrewd and liberal than the often inflexible pronouncements made by contemporary professional voices. The establishment of a socio-historical and theoretical framework enables the reader to appreciate the significance of Galdos's critical focus and personal contribution to such discourses. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 036751
