High and Low

Some critical narratives in 19th century peninsular literature.

*Absence / weakness of romanticism.
*Popular novels vs. the rise of a new canon of serious realist novels.
*Gender roles in reading and writing; construction of female subjectivity; el ángel del hogar
*Relation of Spanish novel to European novels; realism and naturalism
*Development of modernity; place of 19th century in the overall narrative of the "problem of Spain"
