Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyze whether mixed couples –formed by Moroccans and Spaniards– have achieved a success, or not, into Spanish fiction and colonial literature written by women during the 20th century. For that purpose, have been selected a set of sixty-two texts, novels and short stories with Moroccan plots and published during the last century. The methodology used has been that of the Gender Perspective, Cultural Studies and, finally, Postcolonial Theories.
