Summary: Mariano Jose de Larra (1809-1837) was the most critical literary voice of the first third of the Spanish nineteenth century. Whether directed against censorship, the police and the Inquisition, or mypoic social attitudes and passing fads, his writings always showcased his unique, ironic and biting temperament.

The essays and excerpts of more extensive works republished here --Los jardines del Retiro- (1840), -La casa de Cervantes- (1833), -El alquiler de un cuarto- (1837), -Paseo por las calles- (1835), and -Rapida ojeada sobre el estado de la capital y los medios de mejorarla- (1835)- testify to the author's sympathy for Madrid.
