In seven Spanish texts ranging from 1877 to 1993, Gilmour (Spanish, Victoria U. of Wellington, New Zealand) examines the narrative practice by which an author narrates a story through the first-person voice of a character of the opposite sex. She shows how viewing the text through the lens of transvestite narrative can highlight issues related both to gender and to representation, which are common in the texts.
