María Sanchez’s Ecofeminist Poetry
This article aims to study María Sánchez’s poetry from an ecofeminist point of view. In particular, her work Cuaderno de campo is interpreted – following her last essay Tierra de mujeres – as an attempt to create a new feminine voice through the transgression of fixed discursive patterns. Specifically, we will focus on how poetry can ‘sabotage’ scientific discourse in order to build a new narrative that is able to overcome an approach to the natural world based on domination and exploitation. In fact, from its closeness to Nature, this voice claims a new identity based on the ethics of care and the understanding of the world as a web where all living things depend on each other.
