aristocratic owner away from drinking womanizing and emptying the last of the family coffers Born in Galicia in 1851 Emilia Pardo Baz n was a leading exponent of Spanish Naturalism and a key figure in 19th century Spanish literature per se Her 1886 novel The House of Ulloa is generally considered to be her masterpiece My old Penguin Classics copy had been sitting on the shelves for a couple of years but Grant s enthusiastic reaction to the book on Twitter following its recent inclusion in the Pocket Penguins range prompted me to dust it off for Spanish Lit Month now extended to August I m so glad I did It s a marvellous novel a feisty tale of contrasting values as a virtuous Christian chaplain finds himself embroiled in the exploits of a rough and ready maruis and those of his eually lively companionsThe chaplain in uestion is Juli n a gentle innocent and rather sensitive young man who is sent to the House of Ulloa in the Galician countryside in the hope that he will be able to act as a positive influence on the maruis of the manor a libertine by the name Don Pedro From the opening pages of the novel one can detect a palpable sense of foreboding Juli n s journey to the House hints at trouble ahead the manor itself is an old ruin and as for the maruis and the company he keeps the chaplain appears to have his work cut out Here are Juli n s impressions at the end of his first evening a night featuring a bawdy supper where a young toddler is virtually forced into drinking copious uantities of wine by the various men of the houseAll the events of the day began to swim around in his mind The nag that had almost thrown him flat on his face the black crucifix that had sent a shiver down his spine but above all the hubbub over supper and the drunken child His first impressions of the people here were that Sabel was provocative Primitivo insolent the abbot a heavy drinker over fond of his hunting and the dogs far too spilt As for the maruis Julian remembered what Se or de la Lage had said You ll find my nephew rather rough around the edges When you re brought up in the country and never leave it you can t help being dull and churlish pgs 16 17As the previous overseer of the maruis business papers the abbot has left everything in an unholy mess With this in mind Juli n s first task is to try to introduce some much needed order into the affairs of the manor a task that is easier said than done especially when he comes up against Primitivo the commanding majordomo of the maruis estate While the maruis may be lord of the manor in terms of his title and position in the family it is Primitivo who holds all the power over the local traders and tenantsEvery improvement Juli n wanted to introduce Primitivo would shrug his shoulders at and deem impossible Every superfluous thing Juli n tried to do away with the hunter would declare indispensable for the smooth running of the estate Innumerable small difficulties would rise up at the approach of the earnest Juli n preventing him from making any useful change And the most alarming thing was to observe Primitivo s disguised but nevertheless real omnipotence Servants tenants labourers even the cattle in the sheds seemed to be under his thumb and well disposed towards him The flattering respect with which they addressed the master and the half scornful half indifferent way in which they greeted the chaplain turned into utter submission when it came to Primitivo Submission that was not expressed so much in words but in the instant observance of Primitivo s every wish often expressed simply by a fixed cold stare of his small lashless eyes pgs 34 35Primitivo is a marvellous character a rather sly fox who has been stealthily abusing his position within the maruis inner circle to line his own pockets bleeding his employer dry in the process On the other hand the empty headed maruis is under Primitivo s thumb totally dependent on his gamekeeper s knowledge and influence to manage everything And besides there s Primitivo s daughter a shapely servant girl named Sabel who also happens to be the mother of the maruis illegitimate son Perucho Young Perucho is the aforementioned wine drinking toddler The maruis knows that any attempts to replace Primitivo will almost certainly come to a sticky endYou can read the rest of my review here Miss Julia Takes Over
