Visions of Filth

Deviancy and Social Control in the Novels of Galdós

Teresa Fuentes Peris

Liverpool University Press

This book explores how notions of deviancy and social control are dramatized in the novels of the late nineteenth-century Spanish realist author Benito Pérez Galdós. Galdós' treatment of prostitutes, alcoholics, beggars and vagrants is studied within the context of the socio-cultural and medical debates circulating during the period.
