    Impuesto a la carne: la irrupción de una escritura antiedípica y anárquica, desde la abyección del cuerpo femenino
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Fallas Arias, Teresa
    In this approach to the novel Impuesto a la carne (2010) from the Chilean writer Diamela Eltit I analyze, from a gender perspective, the irruption of an anti-Oedipal and anarchic writing experimented by a mother and her daughter from the abjection of their own bodies. Besieged and powerless, facing a system that alienates and tortures them, they rehearse a narrative that bursts in the silence, in between the lines, in the incomplete phrases and the linguistic reiterations, a writing with which they reject the Patriarch and its laws, they tell the silenced as the official account and rebel against sociocultural roles.

    La fragmentación del cuerpo femenino y la degradación del yo lírico a partir de la escritura femenina en La Mano Suicida
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Araya Jiménez, Xinia
    This article analyzes the work of Maria Montero entitled La mano suicida, which shows the formation of the female lyric writing from the fragmentation of the female body and its degradation as a subject writer. It takes into consideration the classification attributed by Francisco Rodriguez Cascante (2006) on Costa Rican contemporary poetry, in which she argues that the work of Montero responds to individualistic poetry. Similarly, literary creation will be considered as the means of communication used by the lyrical first to bring out it’s social unrest.

    Más allá de la letra: cuerpo y escopicidad en la poesía de Ana Rossetti
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Marín Calderón, Norman David
    The poetry of Ana Rossetti (1950-) is filled with different streams of eroticism which reveal the stamp of a eroticized body expressed on her creative page. This relationship between body, writing and eroticism is the result of certain subversion that is born from words against the current hegemonic rules. Therefore, the poet’s writing slogan consists of inscribing her body in the poem making her text, sex, and in that way, she can speak from authentic subjective spaces. This type of body writing takes place when the pleasure of the senses is recovered and placed in the border between the desire of the sex and the enjoyment of the text. Here gaze—and its relation to the image, the scopic drive, and the mirror stage—realizes the tense between the pleasure of the flesh and the vicinity of the Other.

    Jardines del cuerpo que se fragmenta
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Herrera Ávila, Tatiana
    This article will present an analysis on the subject of the fragmentation of the beloved’s body that the lover does in his romantic speech. For this, it will take as a central axis the case of the novel Los Jardines Secretos De Mogador (The Secret Gardens of Mogador) by the Mexican writer Alberto Ruy Sanchez, and it will fundamentally take from the theoretic application that Roland Barthes exposes in A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments, it will also take as starting points some central notions of freudian psychoanalysis, such as the impossibility of completeness and the body as a limit to the subject.

    Cuerpos desgarrados: textualidades desgarradoras. Una aproximación a la escritura de Claudia Hernández
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Rodríguez Corrales, Carla
    The contemporary American literary production constitutes a space for the subjects identity (des) configuration and the collapse of the cultural-imaginary speech. This premise requires search and constant re‐signifying. For this reason, the following work focuses on the study of the ‘cuentario’ De fronteras (2007) of the salvadoran writer Claudia Hernández. The reading of this proposal allows approaching to the body-subjects (des)construction types that live both the literary and cultural textualities and – as a counterpoint - enables the body-subjects (des) articulation of the imaginary and cultural texts. Therefore, we’ll talk about textual bodies, fragmented spellings, corporeal cracks that can become stressed when trying to ‘be’, ‘live’: ‘say’.

    Las manos como símbolo, huella física del trabajo y proyecto ético en “Manos de obrero”, de Gabriela Mistral
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Cuvardic García, Dorde
    The human body is a recurring theme in Gabriela Mistral’s poetry. In “Manos de obrero”, from her poetry collection Lagar, the Chilean poet carries out a Marxist panegyric of the worker’s labor by focusing on the hands, a classic synecdoche of this social class. In addition, what stands out in Mistral’s poem is the detailed physical description of these hands marked by physical work. The hand here is inscribed with the effects of the exploitation of labor. Finally, the hand carries out an ethical, humanitarian function when, through the fruits of its labors, it provides daily necessities for its subjects, such as protection and affection. This article also relates these three modes of representation of the hand (iconographic, corporal/material and ethical) within the framework of Occidental labor discourse as well as the representation of the body in Mistral’s poetry.

    Relaciones entre la representación antropomorfa-zoomorfa de piezas prehispánicas de la Región Central de Costa Rica y dos cartas de Juan Vázquez de Coronado del siglo XVI
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Vargas Benavides, Henry O.
    The following study analyzes two letters written in 1563 by the Spanish conqueror and peace-maker Juan Vasquez de Coronado in light of two general aspects: the first, a map taken from the book Garcimuñoz la ciudad que nunca murió by Carlos Molina Montes de Oca (1993) and a comparison with the Google Maps virtual platform. Here, the route followed by the conqueror with his troop of Spaniards and indigenous people from Garcimuñoz to Quepos and to the region of Coctos is examined. The second aspect is a series of four anthropomorphic figures carved in stone and a gold piece from the subregion of Diquis. All of them belong to the collection of the National Museum of Costa Rica. These figures contrast with the characteristics of those from settlements such as Quepos (the chieftainship of Corrohore) and the settlement of the Coctos Warriors described in both letters.

    Las inscripciones corporales del indio: canibalismo y desnudez en Pedro Cieza de León
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Chen Sham, Jorge
    Although rituals concerning the decoration of the body as a cannibalistic ritual might go unnoticed by the Eurocentric viewer because they do not have the capacity to observe in them neither practices of etiquette nor uses of a collective symbolism, they are valuable when you look in detail at the inscriptions of the body. Reconfiguring them within an environment in which a notion transforms itself into an idea that makes sense of cannibalism and nakedness, two topics, which are understudied indigenous subjects, are reviewed. To this end we analyze of the chronicle of Pedro de Cieza de Leon, who wrote the Chronicle of Peru, the dominion of the Incas (Sevilla 1553).

    El cuerpo cósmico como metáfora del orden divino, natural y social: una interpretación del himno al Purusa (R.V. X, 90)
    (2014-03-17 00:00:00) Morales Harley, Roberto
    The Ṛg Veda is the oldest literary work in India. It consists of a collection of 1028 religious hymns, ordered in 10 books, whose composition dates back to approximately 1500 B.C., with the arrival of the Indo-Europeans to the subcontinent. The Puruṣa hymn (R.V. X, 90) is a cosmogonic text: it explains the origin of the world from the sacrifice of a primordial human being; and also a cosmological text: it supports the divine, natural and social order. In this paper, an interpretation of this literary image of the body is proposed as a determining factor for the caste systems adopted by Hindu society.
