Jane Austen displayed this gift of intelligence, yet it was not just irony that made her say one day that her work materials were from the close observation of the life of three or four village families.
With this, she showed an observant talent that was able to handle characters, status, and, most important, how these elements become adequate as ferment of her literary creation. Although, as we have seen, Austen has been published in Spain through the years, she was not fully studied in Spanish universities. By the time, then, that Hollywood turned its cinematic eyes in a sustained way to the writer in the s, Jane Austen had begun to be much more familiar to Spanish and Spanish-speaking audiences.

In it, Catalina Catherine and Isabel Isabella both fall in love with Henry, whose mother was killed in the abbey. As in a detective story, everything is resolved in Northanger Abbey, where Isabel also visits. According to Diario de Barcelona , the female viewers were able to admire the literary art of one of the best eighteenth- and nineteenth-century English writers, and they could see the plot trend of the period, of which Jane Austen was almost a precursor.
The critic also emphasized the need for this kind of adaptation of writers deserving of a prominent place in literary history.

The Spanish in the s lived under a modern dictatorship with a dying Franco; during this time, society became more open, and other countries, as well as modern social movements, began to influence Spain. As society had developed, culture and education had made the viewers more critical. Some discordant voices pled for accuracy in translations and realism in plots. I have attended to the most strange curious murders and shady deals that can be committed with some degree of ingenuity in the novel of the last century.
But there is also another common point in all these novels, and that is their foreign origin. Since period drama still appealed to the feminine viewer, it was still shown on television. Its style, however, went from theatrical to a cinematographic—from stage-like productions to more naturalistic settings—under the influence of foreign series like The Forsyte Saga or Leonardo DaVinci Diego The impact of adaptations from Hollywood and Great Britain. After the end of Novela , Grandes Relatos , a new television series, appeared in the late s. The newspaper El Pais defined the problem:. In TVE, Pride and Prejudice almost walked in on tiptoes, with shy discretion, as though devastated, [coming just] after the exaggeration of Poldark.
Neither our television nor our audience were ready for this small surprise. In full Romanticism, even the great master of the historical novel, Sir Walter Scott, was fascinated by the works of the discreet Jane Austen. For the Spanish market, it is difficult going from Ivanhoe to the Bennett [sic] sisters. This perfectionist and surprisingly beautiful work, especially in shape, atmosphere and scenery, gives way to a Spanish Grandes Relatos this Wednesday.
Baget Herms wrote:. It is justice to mention one more time the refined technique of the BBC producers and the benefit they derive from their group of excellent actors. The art of making a novel in its pure state agrees perfectly with the technique of Jane Austen, who develops the characters and situations with elegance and finesse and makes easy the task of television script writers.
The talent of the actors—firstly the subtle beauty of Elizabeth Bennett [sic]—does the rest. Who cares about the dull adventures of five British young ladies from the rural gentry, obsessed with marriage, in the beginning of the nineteenth century? In that moment, gothic novels took priority in Great Britain. But the works of Jane Austen seem to acquire tradition as time goes by, and even oblivion is good for them. A happy heritage from the past that today appears so unhappy. Her economical and social analysis anticipates Victorian society, and her formal Puritanism shows a moderate and smiling skepticism.
TVE thought that any British period drama was a warranty of good taste and success, but this adaptation was too brainy for the audience. Lacking the passionate elements of Poldark, it was not well received. As Elizabeth Bennett [sic] said to her aunt, after bumping into Mr. The insistence on British drama series through the entire year made Grandes Relatos fail.

The dramas were not as good as others shown before, and people became dissatisfied. There were no other channels but TVE, and the over-use of these drama shows made the negative criticism grow greater every day. Undoubtedly, the novel Persuasion from Jane Austen—one of the greatest writers in English language from the nineteenth century—does not persuade us. We are a bit satiated with unwilling love. The last two waves that TVE has announced reveal that Grandes Relatos is below average, among the least accepted shows.
It will probably disappear in the coming January. The insistence on and over-use of British period series ensured that people, wanting to see another kind of TV series and miniseries, were exhausted by nineteenth-century British period drama. British period drama, then, became completely forgotten in television during the decade. Unfortunately, there were no similar chances for TV adaptations in Spain. Because period drama is becoming more popular and again has an audience, Spanish audiences can now find these kinds of period adaptations on cinema, cable television, or DVD.
Although there have been some TVE adaptations of Spanish novels in the last decade—adaptations that were more attractive and satisfying than old productions—, the last big production was of the late-nineteenth-century realist novel La Regenta , in Ruscalleda. These more contemporary series were very successful and proposed a new model of family life. The famously dark and linguistically innovative Venezuelan poet Jos?
