Abstract

MAYNE-NICHOLLS VERDI, Alida. AMARILIS AND DELIA DOMÍNGUEZ: LINKS BETWEEN TWO POETS FROM THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF BEING WOMEN AUTHORS. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2013, n.27, pp.33-44. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112013000100002.

In this paper, I propose a link between two female poets: Amarilis and Delia Domínguez. The first one is Peruvian and lived in the XVII century, when her country was a viceroyalty depending on the Spanish empire. The second one is alive and Chilean. Although there is a clear temporal distance, I think that the connecting lines between them go throug their works, and they are not limited to characteristics that could be considered superficial, as the facts that they are women, Americans and poets. My aim is to establish linkages between their work, starting from the premise that they write from a positioning and awareness of being woman and authors. For this purpose I will concentrate on Amarilis's Epístola a Belardo and Delia Domínguez's El sol mira para atrás.

Keywords : Delia Domínguez; Amarilis; female poets; female/author awareness.
