Abstract

This project seeks to revise certain tendencies in literary criticism associated with authors who committed suicide, as Ana Cristina Cesar and Sylvia Plath, in order to separate the analysis of their works and the analysis of their lives in the specific genre of poetry. Seeking to understand the poetic values that are at stake in their poetry, the project seeks to review the theoretical discourse on what is the poetical, what is considered when analyzing poetry and what would then be the misconception related to the death of the authors to a specifically autobiographical reading in the genre in question.
