dc.description.abstractThis thesis focuses on the poetry of a group of contemporary Mexican women poets (Laura Cárdenas, Kyra Galván, Elva Macías, Patricia Medina, Silvia Tomasa Rivera, and Minerva Margarita Villarreal) who began publishing after the feminist movement of the 1970s in Mexico and whose works have not been widely examined by critics. The study and presentation of this poetry focuses on the representation of women, deconstructing stereotypical patriarchal images of them and presenting a different perception, constructed through a dialogue with society and with men. The thesis explores the manner in which these poets construct a complex and complete image of woman, exploring the many facets that make up her identity/identities: sentimentalism, eroticism, social consciousness, and feminism, to name a few. Due to this emphasis on the representation of woman, the thesis relies heavily on feminist literary theory; however, postcolonial and postmodern theories are also used.
