¿Revolución sin afecto? Voces femeninas críticas de la literatura venezolana

  • Isabel Piniella University of Bern


Regarding the political and affective enunciation of female subjects involved in the Venezuelan guerrillas of the 1960s, the article proposes the study of four works published in the following decade and analyzes the conditions of their critical validation in the context of the political de-radicalization of intellectuals. Framed within the testimonial literature or the literature of violence, the texts of Irma Acosta, Antonieta Madrid, and Ángela Zago make possible to access not resolved gender issues by the revolutionary ideal. The genre of testimony, institutionalized in the 1970s, constitutes the disciplinary framework to the extent that these texts dialogue with it and displace it, highlighting the paradoxes of the redeeming discourse of the left in decline and its marked masculinity.
