This thesis aims to compare the novel Crematorio by Rafael Chirbes with the television series of the same title, focusing on political corruption, land speculation and environmental damage associated with these activities. This study demonstrates that uncontrolled construction, covered by the corruption of politicians, generates social and environmental damage that reduces the quality of life. It also illustrates that ecological issues, despite the severity thereof, are not a major concern for the public and authors, but environmental problems are so prevalent in today's society that it is almost impossible not to reflect it directly or indirectly.
