SANCHEZ, Laura A.. RESISTANCE AND FREEDOM: A READING OF "LAS COSAS QUE PERDIMOS EN EL FUEGO" BY MARIANA ENRÍQUEZ FROM THE PERSPECTIVES OF FOUCAULT AND DE BEAUVOIR. Acta lit. [online]. 2019, n.59, pp.107-119. ISSN 0717-6848.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-68482019000200107.

Abstract: In this work I analyze the aspect of the female resistance that is present in "Las cosas que perdimos en el fuego" by Mariana Enriquez from the perspectives of Michel Foucault and Simone de Beauvoir. The first author states that, usually, rebellious expressions are in bottom allowed and controlled by an official order. Therefore, they would be actually reasserting the order they pretend to get emancipated from. On the other hand, De Beauvoir affirms that, in a patriarchal system, the liberating choices offered to women are delusional because they arise from a masculine logic. Based on these proposals, I intent to observe to what extent the actions of the women in this story are in opposition to the dominant system and help them to transcend their situation. Additionally, I draw a parallel between what happens in the literary text and what happens in the context that surrounds it, given that Mariana Enriquez' texts are, according to herself, political texts.
