dc.description.abstractThe objective of this thesis is to examine the concept of rebellion in contemporary Latin American literature written by women. On the basis of the ideas of cultural critics Michel Foucault and Julia Kristeva, rebellion is understood in this study as a driving force for survival, cultural development, and resisting diverse aspects of the status quo. To this effect, we investigate diverse expressions of feminine rebellion in the short stories “La muñeca menor” by Rosario Ferré, “El ángel caído” by Cristina Peri Rossi and “Dos palabras” by Isabel Allende. We will demonstrate that rebellion is an essential element of the feminine Latin American narrative, examining three unifying characteristics in each of the analyzed texts: first, a prominence of female figures; second, a reference to narrated worlds with multiple conflicts that intermingle within psychological, cultural, political, and social spheres; and third, the possibility of a magical resolution of conflicts.en_US
dc.description.abstractLa presente tesis examina el concepto de la rebeldía en una porción representativa de la narrativa latinoamericana contemporánea escrita por mujeres. Este estudio indaga en diversas expresiones de la rebeldía en los cuentos “La muñeca menor” (1976) de Rosario Ferré, “El ángel caído” (1986) de Cristina Peri Rossi y “Dos palabras” (1990) de Isabel Allende. En base a las ideas de Michel Foucault y Julia Kristeva, la rebeldía se entiende en este estudio como una fuerza motriz de la supervivencia personal y el desarrollo cultural que, por lo general, resiste diversos aspectos del status quo. De forma complementaria, se detectan en los relatos indicados tres rasgos concordantes: primero, un determinante protagonismo de figuras femeninas; segundo, la referencia en los mundos narrados a múltiples conflictos en que se entremezclan los ámbitos de lo sicológico, cultural, político y social; y tercero, la posibilidad de la resolución mágica de los conflictos.en_US
