Behind the curtains by Carmen Martín Gaite( Book )

"Entre visillos" narra la vida en una ciudad de provincias llena de rutina, conservadurismo e hipocresía. A través de la charla aparentemente banal de un grupo de muchachas, conocemos sus ocupaciones cotdianas, sus angustias, la insalvable tristeza que asoma tras el aburrimiento y la falta de imaginación. La prsencia de Pablo Klein, llegado a la ciudad para ocuparse de la clase de alemán del Instituto, es el pretexto narrativo que centra la mayor parte de los sucesos. La personalidad de Pablo, reservada y observadora, honesta y poco convecional, choca con el ambiente plano y conformista del lugar. Con recursso estilísticos bien cuidados y un enfoque directo y realisata, Carmen Martín Gaite nos da este retazo de vida española pintado con las tintas de la desilusión, los imposibles y las acpetaciones de una juventud condenada a ver pasar la vida entre visillos. -- 4ème de couverture
Love customs in eighteenth-century Spain by Carmen Martín Gaite( )

59 editions published between 1972 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was customary for the wife of a nobleman in eighteenth-century Spain to be courted fervently and seemingly forever, by a man who was not her husband. This liaison, accepted and even encouraged by the husband, was presumably platonic, though that may not always have been the case. It was carried on according to a complex, if ambiguous, code of companionship and whispered conversation. With the help of a lively blend of archival documents and literary sources, Carmen Martín Gaite admits us to the intricacies of the code and unravels its significance for the women who enjoyed the attention of a cortejo, or escort. Why was the cortejo tolerated, by society and by the woman's aristocratic family, even though it infringed traditional religious precepts? What did woman and her friend talk about at such length? Was their flirtation intellectual, reflecting the effects of Enlightenment rationalism on Spanish culture? Letters, memoirs, and travel journals as well as dramatic works of the period offer invaluable clues to the nature of these relationships, in which the woman was almost ritually adored and placed on a pedestal. The conversation, we learn, was generally frivolous, focusing on possessions and luxuries in a way that clearly signals economic change and the dawn of a material age. At the same time, the cortejo did represent a taste of symbolic liberation for women whose social lives were rigidly constrained. Clarifying details from a great variety of historical sources are presented with the urgency and fluidity of a novel in this excellent English translation -- Book jacket
