A few resources on the novel and Galdós.
The initial post on the novel, thanks to a mention of it by The Neglected Books Page. Also contains a few quotes I had posted in another online life.
A few more quotes from the novel, focusing on the moneylender Torquemada (and his "student" Doña Lupe).

I'll post more on the novel and the read-along soon. As always, feel free to comment on the novel in my posts and let me know when you post on it...I would like to keep a "links" post near the top of the page during October.
Himardi at The Argumentative Old Git has a post on Nazarin in this post and includes some of the film adaptations by Buñuel. I'm just starting to explore Buñuel's films. I'll post on these soon. I hope.
Article: The streets of Madrid as a structuring device in Fortunata y Jacinta by Phyllis Zatlin Boring looks at the structural framework of the novel, including diagrams of the love triangles and linkages of the city streets.
