Abstract

We propose a study about two female characters (primarily about the protagonists) in Marta Portal’s narrative, related to the theme of the fragmented, hidden and sleepless self is offered. The autofiction 270 which delineates each text of the authoress can be found in many characters; these last acts starting from a deep and not always calm process to themselves. The narrative ways used by the authoress, always coinciding with the narrative voice which speaks from a weak point of view to an only corner of observation, define the individual character of histories exploring the limits (ethical, professional, social, amorous) of a woman who, because of many reasons, sets herself apart, at the edge of the society, both physically and mentally. In general, the authoress hasn’t received a big criticism and she has been progressively forgotten. Nevertheless, her literature belongs to a time of profound transformation for narrative texts (1966-1983); it is an alteration that, concerning Portal, affects the character and connote it with different and peculiar ways, in some cases. So, the self is an entity which deserves an accurate reflection related to themes such as the sexuality, occurred or desired, social bond, self-control and self-judgment.
