Resumen del libro

This book investigates how parks and public space figure in attempts to envision Madrid as the capital of modern Spain. It explores the intersections between a burgeoning economy of consumption and the representation of parks, boulevards, and outlying lands in works by Ramon de Mesonero Romanos, Mariano Jose de Larra, Armando Palacio Valdes, Emilia Pardo Bazan, Benito Perez Galdos, and others for whom Madrid's place in 'modern' Europe is critically at issue. To support the close analysis of literary texts, this book draws on the writings of reformers such as Angel Fernandez de los Rios, Ildefons Cerda, and Mesonero Romanos himself, as well as journalists, municipal officials, and economists of the time whose works help frame ongoing debates on the city and its nature. Interdisciplinary in approach, "Cultivating Madrid" argues that gardens and garden imagery trouble the distinction not only between nature and artifice, but also between reality and representation in general, and are thus crucial to understanding realism and the process of modernization in Spain
