Jean-François Botrel’s earlier work on Clarín includes, but is not limited to, the Clarinian classics Los años de aprendizaje de Leopoldo Alas, Clarín, 1875-1880 (1963), and Preludios de “Clarín” (1972) (see pp. 94-95 of Cuentos morales for a more complete list of Professor Botrel’s relevant publications).
