The road map of this investigation crosses the philosophical, literary and political creation of two singular authors, whose main differences find their convergence in the concept of exile. Hannah Arendt and María Zambrano, two women who conceived in their works a hermeneutical space from which exile becomes a privileged point leading to a liberating revelation as well as to the whole transformation of the person in the form of a second birth into a sublimated reality.
Step by step the main elements and symbols of the so called mystique of exile will here be disclosed. In the case of Hannah Arendt it takes the shape of a deep belief in the existence of something superior to mere human life, and whose main exponents are best expressed through the concepts of amor mundi and the theory of natality. In Zambrano, Antigona is the inspiring figure who finds in exile that forest clearing leading to the incipit vita nova.
