CLARK, Zoila Yovanna. Eco-feminism in Maria Luisa Bombal's Surrealist Narrative. Cuad. CILHA [online]. 2010, vol.11, n.1, pp. 59-68. ISSN 1852-9615.
Using Hélène Cixous' concept of écriture féminine and Ress' and Warren's interpretation of eco-feminism, this work presents an analysis of three short stories by Maria Luisa Bombal: "The Tree," "New Islands" and "María Griselda." Bombal's surrealist writing involves a sensorial quest through the unconscious mind in search of a new understanding of female desire, which is still veiled in mystery. Since Bombal identifies female characters with nature when developing intimate female issues, an eco-feminist perspective has particular resonance in a discussion of her work.
