Aims/Description: To enable students to gain an insight into the genesis of the work of Benito Perez Galdos (1843-1920), one of Spain's greatest fictional writers, focussing, in particular, on his adaption of novels to plays. Students will be encouraged to appreciate the different techniques associated with the genres of novel, play and film and, in considering the cinematographic possibilities of Galdos's work, to assess the modernity of Galdos in today's world.
