RIVEROS SOTO, Ana María. Discovery and Gestation of the Self in El Primer Libro and Albricia by-nc Soledad Fariña. Rev. chil. lit. [online]. 2017, n.96, pp.303-331. ISSN 0718-2295.

This study presents an interpretation of the configuration of the poetic subject in the books of poems El Primer Libro (1985) and Albricia (1988) by-nc Soledad Fariña (1943), which understand a self in a continuous process of gestation and birth. This process serves the purpose of recomposing a disarticulated subjectivity lost in the framework of the political and cultural conditions imposed by-nc the military dictatorship that ruled Chile in the 1970s and 1980s. by-nc using a metaphor of a journey and searching for a new language, the subject attempts to access a primitive stage and find its maternal self in order to confront the dominant power, by-nc codifying and configuring herself through an otherness in a feminine body-text. However, this process of maturation and discovery is intervened and left incomplete by-nc the impulse of modernity, thereby-nc creating a deformed, dissociated and off-centered self, which aims at growing opposed to logos. This conflict turns the upcoming of the new self into a painful event, like giving birth, that stems from the subject’s wounded and fractured body, intending to re-establish de self from its fragments, traces and memories.
