As the author states in the introduction to The Quiet Gaze , “Galdós did as Balzac, Zola, and Dickens did in their respective nations, tell him the history and social reality of his country. With his Episodes of him, he was the same as them, turning that vivid past into literary matter, making available to the public a quiet, yet pleasant and well written version, with lively characters and reliable documentation, of a decisive century in Spanish history . ”.
