ROMAN, Nicolás. Desire, Body and Secrecy as Forms of Subjectification in María Luisa Bombal's Literature. Aisthesis [online]. 2012, n.51, pp. 171-184. ISSN 0718-7181.

The problem of desire in the literature of Gilles Deleuze may be understood from two distinct perspectives. On the one hand, we have the bio-political interpretation of desire, from which the techniques of subjection have developed, while on the other, there is the construction of desire as an autonomous and creative reality that tends toward its own subjectification. The narrative of María Luisa Bombal is situated precisely at the crossroads between these two perspectives. Her novels and stories confront the dilemma of how to articulate feminine desire, in which the already rigid silence becomes even more unyielding in the presence of a subjective agency.

Palabras clave : Bombal; Deleuze; Desire; Subject; Subjectification.
