Emilia Pardo-Bazán

b. 1852, La Coruna, Spain; d. 1921, Madrid

Emilia Pardo-Bazán, Spanish novelist, literary critic, journalist, and educator, was one of the most important modern writers at the turn of the twentieth century. Her works deal with many social issues, and demonstrate a particular concern for gender inequity. Additionally, Pardo-Bazán is responsible for introducing French and Russian literary movements to Spain. She is the author of nineteen novels and hundreds of short stories, including The Swan of Villamorta (1885), The House of Ulloa (1886), and The Black Siren (1908).
