Mujeres poetas que curan y cruzan fronteras: una lectura transamericana del cuerpo, la sexualidad y el amor

Carolina Núñez-Puente

Resumen

Partiendo de la idea de literatura curativa (Wilentz), este artículo examina la defensa anti-dualista y reparadora del cuerpo, la sexualidad y el amor en Angelou, Cisneros y Peri Rossi. Mi lectura transamericana busca trascender las fronteras y unirse a las poetas para demoler los prejuicios racistas, (hetero)sexistas y de otro tipo. Las autoras insisten en el cuerpo y las emociones como fuentes de conocimiento; proponen que las mujeres pueden curarse a sí mismas amando sus cuerpos, la poesía puede cerrar las heridas de la violencia machista y el respeto por el lesboerotismo puede curar a las comunidades intolerantes. Mientras celebran a la mujer, las voces poéticas adoptan posiciones no binarias que desafían estereotipos; además, la dimensión transcultural y multitonal de sus poemas funciona como un puente entre las personas. En resumen, la poesía de Angelou, Cisneros y Peri Rossi tiene el poder de traspasar fronteras y sanar al mundo.
