Item description for Negotiating Sainthoo Distinction, Cursileria and Saintliness in Spanish Novels (Legenda Main) (Legenda Main Series) (Legenda) by Kathy Bacon...

This study demonstrates the previously unrecognised significance of discourses of saintliness for constructions of gender and national identity in late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century Spanish culture. Kathy Bacon's innovative approach to sainthood leads to fresh readings of texts by Spain's three principal realist novelists: La familia de Len Roch and Nazarn (Benito Prez Galds, 1878 and 1895), La Regenta (Leopoldo Alas, 1884-85), and Dulce dueo (Emilia Pardo Bazn, 1911). The author challenges the conventional distinction between anti-clerical and spiritual novels by these writers, and questions previous feminist assumptions about the negative role of religion for female identity. Sainthood emerges as a key theme through which texts grapple with Spain's difficult transition to modernity.
