Dona Perfecta

by Benito Pérez Galdós

i love this kind of realism and the conflicts brought up in the novel. The essay on this site is excessive in saying it is best for readers who never get anywhere, but like good company en route. the novel has a self contained social critique communicated through the many and ambiguous layers of narration and ironic implication which provide an effective model, rather than mirror, of the ambiguities of modern life.
