THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE GLOBAL FEMALE SUBJECTIVITY IN LUCÍA ETXEBARRIA’S COSMOFOBIA

Mazal Oaknín

Resumen


Set in the neighbourhood of Lavapiés in Madrid, Lucía Etxebarriaʼs novel Cosmofobia explores the friction produced by the experiences of numerous literary personae from extremely different backgrounds now living in close contact with one another. This article will examine female characterisation in Cosmofobia, to see whether the private and public realm are represented as a similarly complex negotiation of inner and outer selves in the light of the increasingly importance of migration and multiculturalism in Spanish society. Particular attention will be paid to the intersection between the expression of a unique individuality in the form of confessional mode, and the intersubjective elements of women’s experience conveyed in the representation of these characters’ entangled relationships.
