Scrittura ed esilio: l occulto sentiero di Elena Fortún
MetadataShow full item record
Encarnación Aragoneses Urquijo (1886-1952), better known as Elena Fortún, was a famous Spanish children literature’s writer, whose work has been recently reconsidered, in the light of her complex and pioneering activity as a journalist and female creator exploring her unconventional social and gender identity. This paper focuses on the novels she wrote while exiled in Argentina, analysing how this experience reshaped her children literature’s writing, along with its impact on her crucial and most autobiographical novel, Oculto sendero. Published posthumous in 2016, the novel explores Fortún’s in-between gender,social and geographical condition.
