Pardo Bazán's Literary Use of Three Uniquely Personal Nicknames: Gedeón, Suriña, Feíta

Pardo Bazán's Literary Use of Three Uniquely Personal Nicknames: Gedeón, Suriña, Feíta Although the multifaceted use of nicknames has been studied in the novels of Galdós and in Leopoldo Alas's La Regenta,1 to date there has been no study of Pardo Bazán's artistry with nicknames.

Abstract

Although the multifaceted use of nicknames has been studied in the novels of Galdós and in Leopoldo Alas's La Regenta,1 to date there has been no study of Pardo Bazán's artistry with nicknames. However, we may be very sure that Doña Emilia delighted in the creation and employment of sobriquets, because she not only did so in her letters to Galdós during the time of their intimacy,2 but she also has her narrator (Mauro Pareja) confirm in the novel Memorias de un solterón that "[E]n esta Marineda [La Coruña] tienen buena sombra para motes" (I, 85). Nicknames are continually present from the first of Doña Emilia's novels (Pascual López ) onward. However, it is only later in her career-- after her polemics with Pereda, a love affair with Galdós, and derogatory remarks about her personal appearance by critics--that she was motivated to employ uniquely personal nicknames from these experiences. The aim of the present study is to begin consideration of the various ways Pardo Bazán uses nicknames in her novels by focusing upon three of these uniquely personal, self-reflecting, nicknames which differentiate her artistry from that of Galdós and Leopold Alas. Pardo Bazán was a major literary figure
