The need to refute and debate patriarchal discourses on motherhood is not the sole heritage of feminist intellectuals of the twentieth and twenty-first century, but it becomes evident in the work of different writers. This paper seeks to investigate some of the links between the construction of motherhood as a social relationship and literature, as a space of confluence of various social discourses that are resignified in the different fields in which they circulate. This work is not intended to be exhaustive but a reflection on the relationship between narrative and motherhood in the works cited, paving the way for a potential corpus to be analyzed in the future. Este trabajo se propone revisar las representaciones sobre la maternidad en dos novelas de autoras contemporáneas, The Gathering, de la irlandesa Anne Enright y La hija oscura, de la italiana Elena Ferrante. La necesidad de rebatir y debatir los discursos patriarcales sobre la maternidad no es patrimonio único de las intelectuales feministas de los siglos XX y XXI, sino que es evidente en la obra de muchas escritoras. En este trabajo se busca indagar los vínculos entre la construcción de la maternidad como relación social y la literatura, en tanto espacio de confluencia de diversos discursos sociales que se resignifican en los diferentes campos en los que circulan. Este trabajo no pretende ser exhaustivo, sino una reflexión sobre las relaciones entre narrativa y maternidad en las obras citadas, dejando abierto el camino para que se amplíe el corpus por analizar en un futuro. application/pdf text/html http://revistascientificas.filo.uba.ar/index.php/interlitteras/article/view/9737 10.34096/interlitteras.n2.9737 spa Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Universidad de Buenos Aires http://revistascientificas.filo.uba.ar/index.php/interlitteras/article/view/9737/8577 http://revistascientificas.filo.uba.ar/index.php/interlitteras/article/view/9737/8598 Inter Litteras; Núm. 2 (2020); 234-250 2683-9695 0328-8935 motherhood feminism contemporary novel comparative literature maternidad feminismo novela contemporánea literatura comparada Conflict motherhood in Anne Enright’s The Gathering and Elena Ferrante’s Lost Daughter La maternidad en conflicto en The Gathering de Anne Enright y La hija oscura de Elena Ferrante info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion http://repositoriouba.sisbi.uba.ar/gsdl/cgi-bin/library.cgi?a=d&c=interlit&d=9737_oai
