The Throbbing Question (La cuestión palpitante) is a compilation of articles by Emilia Pardo Bazán published in 1882 in the newspaper La Época. This book analyzes realism, naturalism and the ideas of Émile Zola. Here the “Spanish-style” realism of Benito Pérez Galdós and José María Pereda is defended. The pulsating question was a key book in the dissemination of modern literary ideas in Spain and allows us to understand the ideological and stylistic evolution of Emilia Pardo Bazán.
Of the twenty articles that make up The Throbbing Question, the first three are of fundamental importance, in which the author outlines some of the theoretical principles of her critical approach and, in addition, exposes her ideas about the new aesthetics. In the others, the writer analyzes the novels of Flaubert, the Goncourt brothers, Daudet and Zola, and then concludes with an effective synthesis of the panorama of the Spanish novel of her time, while the study dedicated to English literature is more incomplete.
Pardo Bazán does not limit himself to appropriating naturalistic ideas, but also adopts a critical stance towards movement, pointing out its weak points, which are, on the one hand, fatalism or determinism and, on the other, utilitarianism in art. According to the Galician writer, the French authors, by emphasizing the social, physiological and biological conditioning (which constituted precisely the foundations of the theory of the master Zola), failed to grasp that authentic key to the human essence that is free will.
Finally, it should be noted that this edition includes an excellent prologue by Leopoldo Alas Clarín.
