The Theater of Galdós -- Voluntad, 1895
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.
