LIZANA MIRANDA, Paola. Subalternal rhetoric or poetic through the reconfiguration or the house metaphor in Teresa Calderon’s poemary Causas perdidas and Género femenino. Universum [online]. 2021, vol.36, n.1, pp.153-168. ISSN 0718-2376.

This research seeks to account for the hegemonic meanings of western androcentric thinking, considering it as a territory of dominion and violence that establishes centers and margins based on the hierarchical dualities that shape it. In this sense, we propose that in the poetry of Teresa Calderón the lauric image is presented to us as a closed house, a space that allegorizes claustrophobic ruin, detritus derived from the domain substrate on which it is founded. We also show a reconfiguration of the traditional connotation of the house's metaphor as a space for subaltern resistance, where lyric speakers undertake deterritorializing escape routes of the logocentric-patriarchal space, a significant reconfiguration operation that we have called subaltern rhetoric or poetic. In this sense, we point out that to develop the critical analysis that we propose here means to bring together the political and aesthetic dimensions of Latin American scriptural production in a neo-colonial context.

Palabras clave : subaltern rhetoric or poetic; metaphor; house; lauric ruin; modernity, countermodernity.
