Abstract

In a nicely bound volume of the sort for which Juan de la Cuesta is well-known, Susan Walter undertakes the study of thirteen of Emilia Pardo Bazan's short stories published between 1892 and 1909. All of these tales have in common two narrative levels - an introduction presented by one framing narrator and a central narration as told by a second, internal, narrator - thus allowing Walter to "untangle the distinct voices of narrative authority in the texts in order to uncover the ideological positioning of the tale" (22). Also, the author views such stories as "an ideal place to look for an engagement with the theme[s] of gender ideology" and gender dynamics so prevalent in Pardo Bazan 's work.
