Ariana Harwicz (1977) is one of the most prominent argentine writers of feminist literature in Spanish from the twenty-first century. In this dissertation, an analysis of her three novels, Matate, amor (2012), La débil mental (2014) and Precoz (2015), is conducted from a quadruple theoretical framework: hermeneutic, comparatist, feminist and material. Additionally, we highlight the interpretation made in the theoretical foundation of close Reading (Moretti), Sociology of Literature (Bourdieu, production and circulation) and reception theory (Jauss). After the narrative analysis of Harwicz, her production, which has not yet been sufficiently studied, appears like as a real bulwark of literary illegibility and poetic language, and it is also an assertion of the silence as another way of saying for the narrators, who are in continuous tension with the idea of woman that hetero-patriarchal society has been creating and perpetuating; in a desperate search for another language and feminist emancipation through the desire and the cancellation of the norm. Furthermore, from a material approach, we consider that it is interesting and necessary to analyse the wide circulation of Harwicz’s work, as well as the possible causes of the increase of her symbolic capital in the Argentine and global literary field.
