Las mujeres de Arturo Pérez-Reverte

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Arturo Pérez-Reverte’s female characters have attracted scant scholarly attention. This article attempts to address this shortcoming by analysing female figures in Pérez-Reverte’s literature as a whole and also through a selection of significant female literary characters in chronological order of their appearance, with a special focus on the novels of the author’s first period, which comes to an end with El pintor de batallas. What emerges is that female characters are formidable beings in Pérez-Reverte’s literature and that the female gender as a whole is superior to man in his worldview.
