Other literary forms
In addition to two major novels, Leopoldo Alas (AHL-ahs) published more than eighty short stories or novelettes, including “Pipá,” “Doña Berta” (English translation), “El sombreto del señor cura,” “¡Adiós, Cordera!” (English translation), “Dos sabios,” and “Zurrita.” Many of these pieces have been collected and republished under such titles as Cuentos morales (1896, 1973),¡Adiós, Cordera! y otros cuentos (1944), Cuentos de Clarín (1954), and Cuentos escogidos (1964). Alas’s collections of literary and political essays include El derecho y la moralidad (doctoral thesis, 1878), Solos de Clarín (1881, 1971), La literatura en 1881 (1882; with Armando Palacio Valdés), Nueva campaña, 1885-1886(1887), Mezclilla (1889), Ensayos y revistas (1892), Palique (1893, 1973), and Galdós (1912). His only attempt at theater is the play Teresa (pr., pb. 1895). An important general compilation of Alas’s work is that of Juan Antonio Cabezas, Obras selectas (1947, 1966), which includes both of the major novels, twenty-five short stories, and thirty-seven articles.
