abstract

In this article we address the interpretive and narrative keys of Un corazón tan grande, a book of short stories by Eider Rodriguez, where women come into focus. The writer emphasises the importance of the body and the presence of scars, a recurring symbol. Under an apparent normality, conflicts about love, death, pain, (lack of) understanding – agreements and disagreements – beat at the heart of any relationship with family, a partner and one’s neighbours. The narrative ability of Eider Rodriguez reveals the mutable and contradictory nature of human beings, the ephemeral values of today’s society, and the visible and the invisible that underlie in human relationships, and in unsolved conflicts.
