Huerfanía, huachismo e infancia en la poesía de Delia Domínguez

Translated title of the contribution: Orphanhood, bastardy (huachismo) and childhood in Delia Dominguez's poetry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article, the representation of childhood in Delia Domínguez's poetry is analyzed. This is expressed as an aesthetics of orfhanhood and bastardy (huachismo) that tries to return to an original, embryonic condition, by means of a constant looking back through a girl's eyes, in the context of a poeticized community that gives way to the regressive and impossible meeting of a mother and her daughter. In this search, childhood fulfills a reunifying and repairing role.
