A not so Dark Woman. Two Unpublished Letters from Concepción Arenal

Anna Caballé


Two unpublished letters of Concepción Arenal (1820-1893) from two very different stages of her life are presented here. The rst one is dated 1845 and reveals a delicate family negotiation about the future of her sister, Antonia Arenal Ponte. There is also a response from the addressee, a necessary complement for a full understanding of the author’s personal situation. The second, dated 1858, is addressed to her friend Pilar Tornos and reveals interesting re ections on her intellectual activity and the difficulties she had to face in order to obtain a recognition.
