Resumen

MIRANDA, Carolina. The private letter of Wanda Morla Lynch: between discursive genre and documentary source. Logos [online]. 2016, vol.26, n.2, pp.148-162. ISSN 0716-7520.

This essay is an approach to the private letters of Wanda Morla Lynch, a Chilean woman from the early XX century. This approach considers the epistolary genre as a complex and often contradictory genre, propitious to describe a feminine intimacy, feelings and subjectivity, due to the relationship of complicity between the letters and the historically acquired status of subordination, imposed by the patriarchal society. In this sense, this epistolary corpus will allow us establishing a characterization of these private letters as they have a formal/discursive singularity in relation to other genres that conform the corpus of autobiographic writing, as well as exploring and rescuing the value of those letters as a documentary source as they unveil the voice of a woman, who was a privileged witness of the changes that took place in Paris in the 1920’s, epicenter of the modernist avant-garde of the time. Regarding this last consideration, Wanda Morla Lynch’s letters can be also described as a “journey diary” (historically known as a particularly masculine experience), giving us the possibility of reading these letters as a secretly transgressor gesture towards the social conventions of an era.

Palabras clave : Wanda Morla Lynch; private letters; discursive genre; documentary source; journey diary.
