The Theater of Galdos -- Voluntad, 1895
Galdós, Benito Pérez ,  Edited and introduced with notes by Lisa P. Condé


In this play, Galdós’s concept of ‘la mujer nueva’ is incarnated in his new heroine, Isidora, whose willpower or ‘womanpower’ he acknowledged as having been directly inspired by his leading lady, Maria Guerrero. For the feminist, the triumphant Isidora of Voluntad is one of Galdós’s more satisfying heroines, as traditional binary oppositions are broken down and the new woman is allowed to spread her wings and take control.
