Description


En este trabajo se analizan comparativamente los "Bildungsromane femeninos" de la escritora mexicana Carmen Boullosa y de la chicana Sandra Cisneros.

This work is a comparative analysis of the female Bildungsromane of Mexican writer Carmen Boullosa and Chicana writer Sandra Cisneros.

En este trabajo se analizan comparativamente los Bildungsromane femeninos de la escritora mexicana Carmen Boullosa (Mejor desaparece, Antes y Treinta a os) y de la chicana Sandra Cisneros (The House on Mango Street y Caramelo). Partiendo del doble fundamento comparativo proporcionado por la diferencia de g nero y por el germen del legado cultural mexicano compartido por mexicanas y chicanas, este estudio constituye el primer intento de entender la relaci n entre las literaturas producidas por ambas entidades desde un enfoque que integra g nero sexual y g nero literario, materializado en el concepto de "Bildungsroman femenino" que vertebra el an lisis de los textos.
Desde la exploraci n de las diferencias en las representaciones de ambas autoras en el seno de contextos literarios y culturales espec ficos, este estudio enfatiza su proyecto com n de deconstrucci ny reconstrucci n potencial, desde sus ubicaciones particulares, de la mexicanidad femenina, estableci ndose con ello un espacio de convergencia sensible a la diferencia que posibilita la apertura de avenidas para un di logo literario y cr tico transnacional, tan necesario como escaso.

This work is a comparative analysis of the female Bildungsromane of Mexican writer Carmen Boullosa and Chicana writer Sandra Cisneros. Based on a double comparative foundation constituted by gender difference and by the Mexican cultural legacy shared by Mexicanas and Chicanas, the book represents the first attempt to understand the relationship between the literary production of both groups from a perspective that integrates gender and genre, as materialised in the concept of "female Bildungsroman" that structures the exploration of the narratives examined.
By exploring the differences in the literary representations of both writers within their specific literary and cultural contexts, this study emphasizes their common project of deconstruction and potential reconstruction, each from their particular location, and of what is conceptualised as 'mexicanidad femenina', thus enabling a space of convergence sensitive to difference that contributes towards opening up a transnational literary and critical dialogue in the context of the surprisingly poor exchange between Mexicanas and Chicanas.
