Amazon.com description: Product Description: An unforgettable tragicomic novel of sexual and political intrigue in 19th-century Spain

One of the greatest nineteenth-century Spanish novels, The House of Ulloa follows pious Father Julián Alvarez, who is sent to a crumbling country estate to put in order the affairs of the marquis, an irresponsible libertine. When the sensitive priest discovers the moral decadence, cruelty, and corruption at his new home, his well-meaning but ineffectual attempts to prevent the fall of the House of Ulloa end in tragedy. Combining gothic elements with humor and social satire, The House of Ulloa is the finest achievement of Emilia Pardo Bazán, one of the most dynamic figures of her time.
