Isabel Allende es una de las autoras más conocidas de América Latina y desde la publicación de su primera novela, La casa de los espíritus (1982), su popularidad ha seguido aumentando.

La agenda feminista está compuesta por conceptos como, libertad de opresión, el derecho de tomar decisiones independientemente y la igualdad entre los géneros. El análisis está realizado a través de una comparación de dos novelas de Allende: La casa de los espíritus y La isla bajo el mar (2009). De cada novela tres personajes femeninos son analizados y después, las dos novelas son comparadas, con respecto a ciertos temas de las novelas y la relación entre los personajes y la agenda feminista. La tesina concluye que Allende escribe con una agenda feminista y así se comprueba la hipótesis. (Less)

The analysis is carried out through a comparison of two of Allende’s novels: The House of the Spirits (1982) and Island Beneath the Sea (2009). From each novel three female characters are analyzed, and later on the two novels are compared with each other – both on terms of themes from the novels and the characters relation to the feminist agenda. It is concluded that Allende writes with a feminist agenda, and thus proving the hypothesis. (Less)
