Thesis Defense: Beatriz Bernal y la configuración de una nueva imagen femenina en la narración del libro de caballerías Cristalián de España

CNH 401
March 20, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Announcing the Final Examination of Ms. Lorena Ascencio for the degree of Master of Arts in Spanish

The publication of the project “Beatriz Bernal y la configuración de una imagen femenina en la narración del libro de caballerías Cristalián de España” will add to the advancement of knowledge due to the novelty of the topic and the findings that have been incorporated meticulously throughout this research. This work analyzes the first two volumes of the Cristalián de España, which is one of the few novels of chivalry written by a woman in Spain during the 16th century. The main objective of this investigation resides in exploring two aspects about the novel: the woman’s role and position in society, and the narrator’s transgression by creating a new feminine image that aspires to become a collective symbol. This Spanish M.A. thesis also examines the role of the hero in relation to the classic hero portrayed in chivalry novels using Amadís de Gaula as a point of reference.

Committee in Charge: Martha García (Chair), Álvaro Villegas, Lucas Izquierdo, Sandra Sousa
