Descripción

Social critic, author of the famous London Journal, ardent socialist and feminist, Flora Tristan (1803-44) earned in her lifetime a notoriety not just for her writings on politics but for the personal revelations contained in her remarkable Peregrinations of a Pariah. It is the story of her visit to Peru in 1833-34 to claim a share of her father’s family fortune. In that respect the mission failed, but the journey inspired some marvelous tales: of a five-month voyage around the Cape in the Mexicain, whose charming, Captain Chabrié proves a suitor of unflinching zeal; of her uncle Don Pio, patriarch and politician; of her extraordinary role as intermediary between factions  involved in Peru’s revolutionary struggle.

Peregrinations is a personal odyssey and travelogue combine in a brilliant portrayal of a woman’s journey towards independence.
