The Shadow (La sombra) is a short novel by Benito Pérez Galdós. It was first published in installments in November 1870 and between February 1872 and November 1873 in La Revista de España.
Galdós wrote it in Madrid and during a long summer stay in the Canary Islands. La sombra is a narrative essay by the young Galdós. It is a philosophical and fantastic story full of Faustian and Cervantes references, it also contains the literary elements that had influenced the intellectual formation of Galdós:

  • the demons of Balzac,
  • the fantasies of Hoffmann’s tales,
  • the stories of Edgar Allan Poe,
  • The witch tales of his childhood
  • and, in a very direct way, Cervantes’ novel El celoso extremeño, whose protagonist, Anselmo, is named after the main character of La sombra.

These are the materials that serve Galdós to conceive his amazing doctor Anselmo, a kind of Faust, whose obsession – jealousy – materializes in a shadow.
In The Shadow, this literary experiment (of the protagonist character and its author) myths, customs, notions of neurology and art are mixed in a mixed sequence of adventures.
