 About the Book 

A fascinating and comprehensive examination of courtship practices and the role and state of women in 18th century Spain. Provocative and witty, a discerning student of human nature, Gaite draws upon a diverse variety of private letters, plays, novels and essays to get a closer look at the elusive and often bazaar behaviors of a group of men and women with a lot of time on their hands. What might have been a dry fastidious essay is in fact a richly amusing and well-handled bouquet of literary material whose depth is surprisingly profound.
