`Emilia Pardo Bazan (1851-1921) is without a doubt the most prolific and influential woman writer of late-nineteenth-century Spain,' write the editors of this volume. Her writings - novels, novella, short stories, essays, plays, travel writing, cookbooks - cover topics from science and technology to fashion and gender equality. In a literary style characterized by brilliance, they contend with the critical issues of her time and are compelling to teach today. Part 1, `Materials', provides biographical and critical resources, an overview of Pardo Bazan's vast oeuvre, and a literary-historical timeline. It also reviews secondary sources, editions and translated, and digital resources. The essays in part 2, `Approaches', explore Pardo-Bazan's engagement with contemporary literary movements, feminism and gender, nation and the late Spanish empire, Spanish and Galician identities, and nineteenth-century scientific and medical discourses. Film adaptations and translations of her works are also addressed. Instructors of courses on world literature, nineteenth-century literature, gender studies and Spanish-language courses will find the volume invaluable.
