Formatted Abstract/Summary
Since her participation, with Jorge L Borges and Adolfo Bioy Casares in the edition of the Antologia de la Literatura Fantastica (Buenos Aires, 1940) the Argentinian writer, Silvina Ocampo (1903-1993), has been identified with the Fantastic genre. Ocampo wrote an important number of short stories that can be considered “fantasies of the everyday.” Indeed, Ocampo’s fantastic tales are originated from day to day events which affect normal people in very normal circumstances. Rosemary Jackson’s important study on the literature of “Fantasy” highlights the socio-political subversion of this type of writing. For Jackson fantastic literature is one of the genres to emerge from the literature of fantasy and is generated by unconscious desires; she maintains that the most transgressive fantastic texts are those that attempt to remain open, “dissatisfied, endlessly desiring”. This is the case of Ocampo’s fantastic tales which are not only open to socio-political implications but also to the analysis of discourse strategies that will maintain her distinctive ambiguity. In this work I intend to articulate a generic distinction in relation to the kind of fantastic elements that will intervene in the lives of women and men protagonists of her short stories.
