(p.155) Chapter 6 Cross-Dressing and Transnational Space: Isabel Allende's Daughter of Fortune
Transatlantic Women's Literature

Heidi Slettedahl Macpherson

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the issue of transnational space in Isabel Allende's 1999 novel Daughter of Fortune, explaining that this novel engaged with a range of journeys across and between continents and is as much defined by the initial transatlantic movements and later transpacific ones as it is by inter-American ones. It argues that the very joining together of disparate, global concerns in the novel offers a chance to explore how transatlantic literature opens out into other fields and does not remain static or identified solely through one spatial relationship.

Keywords:   transnational space, Isabel Allende, Daughter of Fortune, transatlantic movements, global concerns, transatlantic literature, spatial relationship
