Eva Copeland

Associate Professor of Spanish (2005)

In her essay '"¿Pero no ves que es marcia?" Maxi Rubín and Male Gender/Sexual Deviance in Fortunata y Jacinta," Professor Eva Copeland argues that the representation of Maximiiano Rubin in Fortunata y Jacinta by Benito Pérez Galdós, is based on classifications of male gender and sexual deviance described in medical texts and popular sexology literature in the second half of nineteenth century in Spain. Copeland places the novel at a crucial time in the emerging definition of heterosexual/homosexual in Spain and claims the novel questions ‘stable’ notions of male gender and sexuality by invoking these ideas of deviance and assigning them to the character of Maxi Rubín.
