abstract

The present essay aims at contextualising the production of Puerto Rican poet Julia de Burgos amongst migration writings, highlighting her divergence from patriarchal treintista ideology and her pan-American ideal that conciliates plurality of identities. Furthermore, the essay proves that, despite being related to difficult circumstances, the migrating identity of female Latin American subjects may acquire positive connotations when transposed into lyrical texts. For this purpose, the ecocritical analysis of a selection of texts by Julia de Burgos will show how the fluidity of the female nomadic subject is mirrored in an imagery related to nature and dominated by watery elements.
