The wayfarer’s gaze: images of women in the works of Luis de Góngora/ Giuliana M. Donnelly


The narrative spaces present in the “Polifemo” are explored by Pedro Granados*, who focuses primarily on the sea as a principal structuring device in the poem. Granados notes the bakhtinian nature of the sea in its cycle of death/ renovation/ fertility. He emphasizes the conection of the sea with Doris, and the island Sicily’s, and thus Galatea’s, identification with the sea as its/ her offspring. In this way he assigns the sea and the island of Sicily as feminine spaces. I have used Granados’s ideas as a beginning to further develop the idea of gendered spaces in the “Polifemo” as well those which affect the other female figures treated in this project (21)
