Abstract

THOMAS DUBLE, Eduardo. INTERTEXTOS Y MEMORIA EN JUANA DE MANUELA INFANTE. Rev. chil. lit. [online]. 2010, n.77, pp.181-192. ISSN 0718-2295.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22952010000200009.

The plays of Manuela Infante may be considered some of the most interesting works when we study the new Chilean drama of the last decade, both because of their introspective contents and because of the wide range of cultural allusions to be found in her plays. In her piece Juana (2004), we find significant references to the works of Vicente Huidobro, Rodolfo Usigli and Georges Bernard Shaw, thus establishing a relationship between the dramatic conceptions of this young Chilean playwright and the philosophical and esthetic tenets of those authors: there we may find a convergence of art, myth and memory. In this essay we will study the reworking of the character of Joan of Arc in the already mentioned play Juana, and we will explore the importance of these intertexts in order to show that the ‘works of historical memory’ to be found in Infante and the Compañía Teatro Club is founded on a solid Latin American and European tradition.

Keywords : Manuela Infante; Dramatical poetics; intertextuality; memory.
