The novel opens during the boisterous Seville Carnival of 1896 during which Andre Stevenol, an amorously-inclined young Frenchman, succeeds in attracting the attention of the alluring Concha Perez. A rendezvous is arranged, but before it can take place Andre meets Don Mateo, who, in a long monologue recounts his affair with Concha and seeks to dissuade the younger man from becoming embroiled with the worst of women, who has teased, ridiculed and humiliated him. The warning like most warnings had little effect.
