The Blazing World is the most famous novel by the prestigious writer, poet, playwright and natural philosopher Margaret Lucas Cavendish (1623-1673). In the work, the author narrates the experiences of a woman who is under arrest and who achieves freedom, autonomy and power when she arrives on another planet, the Luminous World. The adventures she lives in this world and her conversations with anthropomorphic animals and immaterial spirits are a sample of the originality and the visionary mind of the author, who brilliantly explores the revolutionary power that imagination and the printed word can have.
In Lucas Cavendish there converge the proto-feminist tradition of the “Querelle de les dones”, initiated by Christine de Pizan with La Cité des dames (1404-05), and the natural-philosophy fiction also cultivated by Johannes Kepler in Somnium (1634) or Cyrano de Bergerac in L'autre monde (1657).
This edition includes an extensive critical introduction to El Món Lluminos, the story “Els esperits viatgers”, in which a man and a witch undertake a journey that takes them to the center of the Earth, and three poems characterized by a marked environmental and animalistic ethics, and where we can recognize traces of current ecology.
