About this product
- DescriptionDaughter of the Sea is the first of five vels written in Spanish by the Galician Rosalia de Castro (1837-1885). Its characters and events reflect the young author's concern for the Galician people, particularly those of the coastal area, and for women. In this story of passion and violence, cloaked in a supposedly romantic style, Castro joins other nineteenth-century women authors in deuncing ecomic and social injustice. This is the first translation of her fiction, and it brings to English-speaking readers a spirit that is comparable to George Sand, Madame de Stael, and the Brontes.
