Part of the Nineteenth-Century Major Lives and Letters book series (19CMLL)


Within a five-year period the English writer Alexander Robert Charles Dallas (1791–1869) published three books on Spanish matters: Ramirez. A poem (1817); the novel Felix Alvarez, or Manners in Spain (1818), which reflected his experience as a British soldier in the Peninsular War; and finally, a second novel that offered a deeper foray into Spanish history, Vargas, a tale of Spain (1822).
