The directory «Plots»
pseud. of Cecilia Böhl de Faber
Spanish novelist and folklorist. Born in Switzerland, she spent most of her adult life in Andalusia, where her novels are set. They are marked by a didactic tone and sentimental plots, reflecting regional life and Caballero’s own traditionalism. The first novel, La Gaviota (1849, tr. The Sea Gull, 1864), influenced the modern Spanish novel of customs.
