Abstract

ARROS-ARAVENA, Horacio Alejandro; FARIAS ROJAS, Gabriel; ESGUEVA LOPEZ, Victoria  and  PARRA BRAVO, Cristian. A BIOGRAPHICAL DISCOURSE ON GABRIELA MISTRAL AS REPRESENTED BY IMAGES ABOUT HER. Perspect. comun. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp.127-148. ISSN 0718-4867.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48672021000200127.

The objective of this article is to establish a semiotic journey of Gabriela's canonical account, which has been officially installed to corroborate the written versions of her biography; this is done without ignoring a parallel journey of rebellious images that help decentralize the first traditional life-based account from different perspectives. Likewise, it is essential to give an account of a third tour of post-mortem images of Gabriela Mistral, which, from the creative freedom of those who manipulate and publish them, can lead to other understandings about Mistral, given the fact that they are not necessarily related to Mistral’s either canonical life or rebellious life. For this categorization and analysis, it was necessary to focus on Paleotti's theory (2002) of divine and profane images, and then add this third moment of a series of images shown after Mistral’s death. The results, in addition to showing semiotic-biographical journeys about the poet, refer to an existing itinerary of images that has been almost overlooked, as biographical studies have been mainly focusing on written aspects to provide an account of Gabriela Mistral’s biography.
