ESPINOSA, Gabriela Mariel. Words on Water: Patagonia and microfiction. Cuad. CILHA [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.2, pp. 71-79. ISSN 1852-9615.

In Argentine and Chilean Patagonian literary production, water becomes a dominant element that arises in the writing in its several manifestations: as rain, dew, river, spring, streams, lagoons, lakes, sea, among others; it goes through the collective imaginary in such a way that the poetic speaker or the narrator seem to be looking for firm land or an island where to anchor his/her writing. In this paper, I am interested in inquiring into how this essential element is textualized in the minimum compositions that make up the corpus of microfictions produced in both Patagonias, especially, in the south of Chile, taking into account that the hydric and insular landscape built in the texts does not imply geographic or regional determinism but the projection of a world perception.

Palabras clave : Microfictions; Patagonia; Sea; Insularity.
