Literature Female Travel: The Vision of Spain Throughout Six Foreign Writers

  • Lorena Barco Cebrian Assitant Professor in Paleography, University of Malaga, Spain

Abstract

Travel literature is a genre very known by the historiography; the researchers have been analyzed from the journeys of the Antiquity up to the Contemporaneousness. Nevertheless, those studies have showed a special interest for the travel literature produced by masculine subjects, whereas the literature produced by female writers has not been treated up to very recent dates. For it, in this work we propose to announce a series of women writers, some of them very known already, but others practically unknown in our country. These women, intrepid and bold travelers, travelled to Spain throughout the centuries of the Modernity, extending the period chronological until the Nineteenth century. It is of six women writers whose literary production, in most cases, has not been translated into Spanish.
