BEGOÑA MÉNDEZ

Santa Teresa, Soledad Acosta, Zenobia Camprubí, Teresa Wilms Montt, Lily Íñiguez, Marga Gil Roësset, Idea Vilariño, Susan Sontag, Alejandra Pizarnik and Mariana Eva Perez are the ten authors object of this essay. The selection responds to subjective criteria, and yet these women have a lot in common: reading them is going on a trip to the limits of existence and identity, since it is in their personal notebooks where they were extremely naked, with all their desires and their pain exposed. If the diaries began to be censoring and vigilant tools by authorities (the Church, the mother, the husband ...), they managed to transform them - even if they paid a high price for it - into spaces of freedom. Their testimonies teach us that risking  is worthwhile and that intimacy is a fertile territory. This book exists for all the authors who decided to crouch in their inner exiles, for all the women who transformed their discomfort and their marginality into places for artistic rebellion, into territories for insubordination and self-conquest. Begoña Méndez (Palma, 1976) has a degree in General Linguistics and Hispanic Philology from the University of Barcelona, ​​a master's degree in Literature in the Digital Era (UB) and in Humanities (UOC). She is a professor of language and literature and collaborator in the cultural journals Pliego Suelto, El Cultural and Mercurio. She has published Una flor sin pupila y la mujer de nieve (Sloper, 2019).
