The colonies in the Galdosianos' episodes

Dolores Troncoso Durán About the author

Abstract:

Whereas Galdós never wrote the episode programmed Las Colonias perdidas, the reference to them and their meaning for Spanish society of the 19th century are present in the course of the Episodios nacionales as shown in this article that, in addition to signaling its location in a way, reflects on Galdós' critical view of the way in which his contemporaries and 18th century Spanish politicians perceived the colonies at the historical moment of the end of the Spanish colonial empire.
