Abstract

This study aims to analyse the way in which Clarice Lispector developed her reflection on the condition of women through literary and journalistic writing. Although she has constantly rejected the label of feminist, the works of the Brazilian writer seems to trace a path of liberation from so- cial standards: an apprenticeship of “being a woman” that dispenses with any concept of gender. Referring mainly to the reflections of Judith Butler and Pierre Bourdieu, this aspect will be deepened through the analysis of the “women’s pages” published under pseudonyms between the 50s and the 60s, and the novel Uma aprendizagem ou O livro dos prazeres; texts that are very different from each other but that offer interesting perspectives on “being a woman” according to Clarice Lispector.
Este estudio se propone analizar el modo en que Clarice Lispector desarrolló su reflexión sobre la condición de la mujer a través de la escritura literaria y periodística. Aunque ha rechazado constantemente la etiqueta de feminista, la escritora brasileña, en su obra, parece trazar un camino de liberación de las convenciones sociales: un aprendizaje del "ser mujer" que prescinde de cualquier concepto de género. Refiriéndose principalmente a las reflexiones de Judith Butler y Pierre Bourdieu, se desarrollará este aspecto a través del análisis de las “páginas femeninas”, publicadas bajo seudónimos entre los años 50 y 60, y de la novela Uma aprendizagem ou O livro dos prazeres, textos muy diferentes entre sí, pero que ofrecen interesantes perspectivas sobre el "ser mujer" según Clarice Lispector.
