VIVAS LACOUR, Carmen Victoria. Amargo el fondo (1957): Dialogue between Feminist Tradition and Literature. Distances and Approaches towards Teresa de la Parra. Anclajes [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.2, pp. 165-175. ISSN 1851-4669.
The main objective of this article is to analyze the novel Amargo el fondo (1957) written by Gloria Stolk. The interest for this novel is based on the turning point that this publication seemed to produce in the trajectory of the writer and the Venezuelan feminine writing. As far as subject matter is concerned, this study emphasizes Stolk's search for new parameters that lead her to the fixing of subjectivity boundaries in an open dialogue with Teresa de la Parra's novels. The narration shows a change as regards the camouflaged position that the author showed in her first texts, thus manifesting an opener feminist position. After having obtained certain public recognition for her previous works, she adopts, in this fiction, the romantic novel format to question and undermine its bases from inside. Although such a decision aims towards a moderate breaking-off, it is possible to notice the obliteration of the classic representations of Venezuelan literature related to the feminine subject.
