La Regenta by Clarín

"La Regenta" is a classic of Spanish literature that takes place in a small provincial town and centers around the character of Ana Ozores, a married woman who becomes the object of desire for two very different men: the town's liberal Casanova and a conservative, ambitious priest. The narrative explores themes of religion, hypocrisy, and forbidden love in a repressed society. The author's detailed depiction of the town and its inhabitants provides a vivid backdrop for the tragic love triangle that unfolds.
