Synopsis

Este libro es un estudio detallado de los papeles jugados o atribuidos a los personajes femeninos en la epica medieval espanola. Examina como las mujeres en la literatura historica espanola han sido transformadas en el teatro, la poesia y la novela desde la Edad Media hasta autores del siglo veinte como Juan Goytisolo, Antonio Gala, Maria Teresa Leon y Lourdes Ortiz. Aprovechando el concepto de Walter Benjamin del grano de trigo preservado a traves de los tiempos, explica como la memoria historica de los hechos de estas mujeres ha sido deformada y olvidada. Las necesidades esteticas y, sobre todo, las ideologias dominantes afectaron sus representaciones literarias. Desde tiempos medievales hasta el presente, los autores que estudiamos glorifican a los personajes masculinos sin manchar la fama del heroe o criticar al monarca. La enorme mayoria de los textos restan valor a la contribucion de las figuras femeninas como agentes de cambio, o las usan como chivos expiatorios de crimenes masculinos. El retrato cambiante y predominantemente negativo de las mujeres epicas permite que la memoria colectiva nacional de los mitos fundacionales espanoles pueda sobrevivir y ser narrada de diversas formas. MARJORIE RATCLIFFE es profesora en la Universidad de Western Ontario.
