This scholarly edition of three stories by de Burgos includes the unabridged texts, vocabulary, notes, chronology, bibliography, 'temas de debate y discusi{\'o}n', and a critical introduction. Confidencias is the fictional diary of a young woman, describing her first adulterous relationship and exploiting the narratological possibilities of the diary form. La mujer fr{\'i}a is a vampire story featuring perhaps the very first pitiable vampire, or at least one of the earliest examples of this type, whilst ingeniously maintaining undecidability as to whether the protagonist is supernatural. Pu{\~n}al de claveles narrates a wedding-day elopement. Inspired by the real-life 'Crimen de N{\'i}jar', Federico Garc{\'i}a Lorca drew on both stories for his Bodas de sangre.",
