Between Alexandria and France: the Places of "La Triomphante" by Teresa Cremisi

María Manuela Merino García



We propose a study on La Triomphante, the first novel by Teresa Cremisi, which narrates the journey of the protagonist from the south to the north of the Mediterranean. Taking Paul Ricœur Ricœur´s studies as a starting point, our analysis of the journey will unite the concept of narrative identity, which goes from sameness to ipseity in the discovery of alterity, to the triple schema of the journey proposed by Xenophon: anabasis, parabasis and katabasis.
