RODRIGUEZ, Mario  and  RODRIGUEZ, José Manuel. EL DELIRIO QUE VIENE DE LAS NINFAS EN LA NOVELA LATINOAMERICANA: "NADA MÁS QUE SER FELIZ". Rev. chil. lit. [online]. 2008, n.73, pp.189-215. ISSN 0718-2295.

When exploring panopticism in Latin American novels, we encountered an unexpected image, that ofthe nymphs, an image we hadnot accounted for in our research. We had not looked for nymphs, a figure for previously present in earlier readings o fthese novels; but those paradigmatic feminine figures in avant-garde narratives (La Maga, La Eterna, Beatriz, Brigida, Elsa) can categorically be described as nymphs. They are inseparable from aquatic and vegetal elements (like the driade Brigida in El árbol by María Luisa Bombal). They actuate through the medium of rivers, fountains, trees and flowers.

Keywords : Panopticism; fracture; nymphs; alterative thinking; utopia.
