This article argues for an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the so-called escritoras isabelinas, Spain’s mid-nineteenth century women writers, in order to develop a fuller understanding of their intervention in contemporaneous culture. The cases of Ángela Grassi, Faustina Sáez de Melgar, Joaquina García Balmaseda and Pilar Sinués de Marco show that their tactical use of bricolage (Michel de Certeau) situates them at the interstices of authorship, the publishing sector and the fashion industry. The complex relations between their authorship and their multiple commercial initiatives would be best captured from the perspective of the new historical biography.
