Notes

Abstract: Reading Françoise de Graffigny's 1747 novel 'Lettres d'une Péruvienne' as an atypical travel narrative, I argue that the author's use of epistolary silence, a lack of response to a letter or a hiatus between letters, constitutes an integral part of her feminist message, a message we can recuperate by interpreting that silence.
