CECCHIN, Andrea Mara. Analysis of desires in two letters by Frida Kahlo. Subj. procesos cogn. [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.2, pp.42-49. ISSN 1852-7310.

Based on two of Frida Kahlo's letters (27 March 1927-29 July 1932), the manifest wishes and their relationship to the vital period of the artist will be analyzed, by referring to the work of art in the same historical period (Self-portrait in velvet clothes, September 1926, and My birth or Birth, 1932). The methodological instrument used is the Computerized Dictionary and the grids designed for the analysis of speech acts, applied in selected texts. The expected outcome is the detection of the dominant wishes irrespective of the prejudices that could stem from the biography of the artist in its artistic manifestations and letters.

Keywords : Erogenicity; Main wishes; Traumatic events; Methodological reliability.
