The body and ritual healing in Samanta Schweblin's "Fever Dream"

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

Literature is able to give a new significance to clinical facts by revealing the potentiality that its signifiers acquire through time and the evolution of social groups. In this study I propose an analysis of the metaphoric function of the concept of the body (in its meaning of the social body) and ritual healing in Fever Dream by Samanta Schweblin. The aim is to study how these elements contribute to contextualizing the environmental denouncement of the use of toxic chemicals described by the author.
