Is the pícaro, the roguish hero of early modern Spanish adventure fiction,
a 'real man'? What position does he hold in the gender hierarchy of his fictional
social context? Why is the pícara so 'non-female'? What effect has her gender
constitution on her fictional social context?
In terms of a gendered subject, the picaresque figure has hardly been analyzed
so far. Although scholars have recognized it as a transgressive and subversive
model, the 'queer' effect of the figure is yet to be examined. With regard to
the categories of class, generation, topography, and gender, the contributions
assembled in this volume explore Spanish, French, English, and German novels
narratologically from the perspective of culture and gender theories.
