Mayflower (Flor de mayo) (1921)

A masterly novel of the sea, the sea of Sarolla's fisher folk... Homeric i their simplicity and elemental passion.

Woman Triumphant (1920)

Woman Triumphant interweaves in its story all the tangled threads of a great artist's life--his impelling genius, his passionate desire to paint the beauty of the world, his periods of reaction, his wife's love in conflict with her jealousy of much that his painting involves, and his love for her which dominates his life to the very end. The rich colors of the artistic life of Madrid, Rome and Venice are vivid in its pages. Its keen insight and vital force are characteristic of that master of modern fiction.Translated by Hayward Keniston.

The Shadow of the Cathedral (1903)

Translated from the Spanish by Mrs. W.A. Gillespie. With a critical introduction by W.D. Howells.

The Blood of the Arena (1911)

This truly magnificent novel is a translation of "Sangre y Arena," and gives a picture of what Spanish life—and especially the bull-fighters life—really is, that will be declared nothing less than a masterpiece.

Mare Nostrum (1919)

Freya Talberg is a German secret agent during WWI. Though outwardly cold and seemingly untouchable, Freya loses her heart to a Spanish sea captain, and as a result of her infatuation she is captured and sentenced to execution by firing squad. [Authorized translation from the Spanish by Charlotte Brewster Jordan.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1919)

This is an able and powerful novel, with good characterization, a picture of life in Argentine but the greater part of the scene, Paris and the field of the war. There are some new phases given in the vivid war descriptions; some of the situations are unconventional but unpleasant things are touched with a skilful hand and it is all written under the direction of fine taste. Only appeals to experienced readers. Translated by Charlotte Brewster Jordan.
