Cicatrices Resonantes Género, violencia y memoria en la obra literaria de Rocío Silva Santisteban


Ágata Cristina Cáceres Sztorc

The research presents, first, a brief historical overview of the decades of political violence in Peru as well as relevant approaches to racial discrimination and miscegenation. From a hybrid approach appealing to Gender Studies, Feminist and Post-Feminist Studies, Cultural Studies, Subaltern Studies, Memory and Post-memory studies, we propose three axes of analysis through Rocío’s Silva Santisteban poetic and narrative works: The patriarchal system and gender inequality, sexual violence against women during the internal armed conflict and post-memory. It is an approach that attends to the analysis of the articulations between different systems of signs and discursive practices, literary or not.

4. Perspectiva de género y violencia sexual contra la mujer durante el conflicto armado interno. El cuerpo femenino como campo de batalla


A ti te mataron porque nunca predicaste sobre

la blancura de la cal

sino construir con la arena castillos de igualdades.

A ti te mató el oscuro corazón de la envidia.

Ese mismo turbio corazón que despedaza en cada época

toda fe, todo amor

sobre ti se descargó su ira

porque organizaste piedras, pensamientos, huracanes.

A ti te mataron porque domaste la arena,

esa misma arena que ahora cubre tu sepulcro
