Emilia Pardo Bazan

a.k.a. Countess Pardo Bazan

Author Code: SEPB

Born: Sep. 16, 1851 - Corunna, Spain

Died: May 12, 1921 - Madrid, Spain

From an aristocratic family, Pardo Bazan married and moved to Madrid in 1868. She began to contribute articles to magazines and in1876 won a literary prize which gave her some notice in literary circles. In 1879, she published Pascual Lopez, the first of many novels. She also became involved in politics which would play an important role in her later life. She caused a sensation in 1883 with the publication of La Tribuna, a novel of working-class life set in a cigar factory in her home town of Corunna. The controversial and naturistic essence of her work led to her separation from her husband. From 1891 to 1893, she was phenomenally prolific, producing over 500 short stories together with numerous essays and criticisms which made her the most important 19th century Spanish short story writer. In 1908, she was made a countess (condesa) and in 1910 was named a member of the Council of Public Instruction. She published novels until 1911. Her many works include St. Francis (1882), La Cuestion Palpitante (1883), El Cisne de Vilamorta (1885), Los Pazos de Ulloa (1886), La Madre Naturalza (1887), Insolacion (1889), La Prueba (1890), Dona Milagros (1894), Muterio (1903), La Quimera (1905) and La Sirena Negra (1908).
