Written by Benito Perez Galdos,one of Spain's best kept literary secrets and arguably the greatest Spanish author since Cervantes,THAT BRINGAS WOMAN(1884)is part of Galdos's panoramic series of novels about Madrid social life and is alsoindirectly,a novel about the revolotion in Spain.Focusing upon the Bringas household in a manner reminiscent of,and probably influenced by,Zola,it offers a shrewd and none too flattering analysis of feminine psychology and an intimateportrait of marriage.However,unlike Flaubert,Tolstoy and Alas,the other great novelists of adultery of his day,Galdos's view of the subject and its, consequences is both hard headed and humorous rather than tragic.

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
