This article follows the traces of a special poetic narrative in the concepts of space and the body in four Galician women writers of the last third of the twentieth century: M.ª Xosé Queizán, Margarita Ledo, Xohana Torres and Úrsula Heinze. The symbolic construction of space in relation to the body in narrative is closely linked to the need of expressing new mentalities. These accompany the emergence of women and non-heterosexual men as protagonists in the public sphere and in Galician literature.
