Chapter Summary

This chapter of biographical reconstruction and textual analysis sets out to reflect on the intellectual strategies used by some Spanish women writers of the late eighteenth century. These strategies served to justify their literary activity and their ambition to put forward their thinking in the public sphere of the republic of letters before the opinion and critics of the age and to themselves. An attentive reading of the brief known oeuvre of Inés Joyes, both as author and as translator, and an interpretation of it in the social and cultural framework of her time will enable to come closer to the significance of translation as a form of appropriation and circulation which includes a possibly meaningful relation to the original text. More specifically, one shall be able to understand the part that this activity played in the practice of writing by women in a particular context, that of eighteenth-century Spain.
