Fotografiar el perfume

Mara Negrón

Resum


H. Cixous does not identify “Woman” with biological sex, not even with one gender, but with the “capacity to embrace the other”. So the writing which is open to alterity is “feminine”, even if the author is a man, because “a man-that-writes” is no longer a man, according to Cixous. However, Cixous led feminist literary theory, from 1975 onwards, to ponder the relationship between writing and the body, without using the sexual categories of man/woman. Taking Cixous's “Contes de la différence sexuelle” as a starting point, M. Negrón describes Cixous’s “writing in movement” as that which aims at an impossible objective, “photographing the perfume”, that is, exploring interiority, describing what cannot be described, saying what cannot be said.
