María Sanchez’s Ecofeminist Poetry

Carlos Frühbeck Moreno    Università degli Studi di Enna «Kore», Italia    



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.
