MEDINA BRAVO, Marcela. Discourse, subversion and rebelliousness of gender in Infamante Electra by Benjamín Galemiri. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2011, n.24, pp. 61-79. ISSN 0716-5811. doi: 10.4067/S0716-58112011000200004.
The text The Infamous Electra, of Benjamin Galemiri (Chilean) is analysed as a dialogic discourse where a number of transgresor linguistic forms are crossed which are updated in the contemporary Chile, based on the conflict / tragic point view (Myth of Electra) whose stage displays a relationship between power and sexuality that transforms the couple (Father / daughter) into a dialogue of textual confinement which sets a new semiotic space, whose categories of critical analysis may be related to gender and society issues. It is established as a support of the textual analysis the shift and the crossover of the sintagm / paradigm dichotomy.
Keywords : Gender; power; speech; dramatic text; intertextuality; Syntagm/ paradigm.
