Abstract

Few activities mark gender divisions and hierarchies the way war does. Women who write about war contribute toward revising the predominant constructed realities. This is the case of women's war narrative in the Spanish-speaking world, where civil wars and revolutions have inspired women to write novels situated in those times of intense upheaval. This book proposes that literary texts are not simply cultural products but also makers of culture, insofar as they propagate the model they reflect. Through history and fiction, the analyzed novels achieve a narrative authority that provides them with an epistemological advantage over that of other works of fiction. The alternative visions they present create a possibility of new knowledge production that breaks away from traditional ideas of women's role in society and the lesser value accorded to feminine activities.
