Carmen de Burgos is one of the most important Spanish feminist writers and activists of the twentieth century. Her career is particularly interesting since she uses her writing for political purposes at a historical time when the increase in literacy rate resulted in an unprecedented demand for reading material. This article fills a significant gap in Burgos Studies: its analysis of La entrometida/The Busybody shows how Carmen de Burgos reworks popular fiction in order to foreground and question accepted identity formations. The discussion focusses on happiness as well as the social function and political value of popular culture, in particular the symbolic role played by a fictional feminist.
