Las traducciones de Gautier, Flaubert y Zola y la imagen de la mujer en la obra de Amancio Peratoner

Abstract: Amancio Peratoner was a versatile author from the second half of the 19th century. He was very popular in his time, mainly for his attempts to make the principles of sexology publicly known —both through his original works and his translations— for his compilations of erotic poems and other minor works, and for his task as a bookseller. He also was a novelist and a literary translator (and, as such, he did many numerous translations and free versions from contemporary French authors). This article studies the image of woman in his own literary works, as compared to the heroines in the novels by Gautier, Flaubert, and Zola that he translated, paying attention to his interest in spreading texts dealing with sex and prostitution. This study also describes the literary and social context in which Peratoner carries out this practice.
