The women of 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 analyzing 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 The Battle Painter. 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.
