«Fruta podrida»
La escritura descompuesta de Lina Meruane

Beatriz Ferrús
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Espanya


The work of the successful Chilean writer Lina Meruane has received little critical attention. Her novel Fruta podrida covers some of the most recurrent themes of her production: women, illness and centre/periphery relations. A theoretical analysis of this text is proposed from the notions of biopolitics and abject, but also from the formal strategies that pursue a decomposed and body writing.
