This study seeks to identify Ros de Olano's specific innovations and departures from Romanticism through a comparative study of his work and its precedents and contemporaries throughout Europe, with a view to later developments. It explores his literary engagement with the legacy of transcendental idealism and the autobiographical traditions. His privileging of incident and episode over more conventional narrative, his favouring of irreconcileability over resolution is explained and placed in a detailed context. In searching for alternatives to his literary problems, he makes a remarkable contribution to Spanish prose literature.
