About Author

  1. Armando Palacio Valdés says:
    Armando Palacio Vald s 1853 1938 was a Spanish novelist and critic Vald s was born at Entralgo in the province of Asturias on the October 4, 1853.His first writings were printed in the Revista Europea These were pungent essays, remarkable for independent judgment and refined humour, and found so much favor with the public that the young beginner was soon appointed editor of the Revista The best of his critical work is collected in Los Oradores del Ateneo 1878 , Los Novelistas espa oles 1878 , Nuevo viaje al Parnaso and La Literatura en 1881 1882 , this last being written in collaboration with Leopoldo Alas.In 1881 he published a novel, El se orito Octavio, which shows an uncommon power of observation, and the optimistic promise of better things to come In Marta y Maria 1883 , a portrayal of the struggle between religious vocation and earthly passion, somewhat in the manner of Valera, Palacio Vald s achieved a very popular triumph which placed him in the first rank of contemporary Spanish novelists.EL Idilio de un enfermo 1884 , a most interesting fragment of autobiography, has scarcely met with the recognition which it deserves perhaps because the pathos of the story is too unadorned The publication of Peredas Sotileza is doubtless responsible for the conception of Jos 1885 , in which Palacio Vald s gives a realistic picture of the manners and customs of seafaring folk, creates the two convincing characters whom he names Jos and Leonarda, and embellishes the whole with passages of animated description barely inferior to the finest penned by Pereda himself.A collection of his short stories appeared in English translation in 1935.
