Abstract

CID HIDALGO, Juan D. Sexual indefinition and discipline over a character X. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2012, n.25, pp. 83-98. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112012000100005.

Through her relationship with various female types, Equis, unforgettable character from La nave de los locos by Cristina Peri Rossi, adds herself to the play of sexual indefinition as part of justifing her being in the world. Thus, it is absolutely important the striptease club scene, where Lucía/Dolores becomes a "beautiful ephebe", transformation that sets the androgyny in the very center of dismantling and overcoming from essential binarism male/female.

Keywords : androgyny; discipline; sexual indefinition; Peri Rossi; disturbing; power; knowledge.
