Silvina Ocampo y su particular santoral femenino


Trinidad Barrera    Universidad de Sevilla, España    


Silvina Ocampo signs, together with Borges and Bioy Casares, the Antología de la literatura fantástica (1940), setting up early in the modality that the three would practice separately. His work, multifaceted, has a unique book, Breve santoral (1985), which recreates the lives of seven women who achieved holiness with singular lives. Her selection says a lot about the issues that concern Silvina in her brief narrative regarding women.
