Reflection on the enigma of femininity, understood as the cultural and historical idea of what it means to be a woman, is an essential element in the work of Patricia Esteban Erlés. In her narratives, this preoccupation creates thematic nuclei such as the representation of corporeality, social positioning or the rejection of certain normative discourses. Starting from the symbolic structure of Casa de muñecas (Doll’s House), whose micro-stories offer a compendium of different female paradigms, the aim of this paper is to analyse the construction of female subjectivity in the author's short and hyper-brief texts. To this end, it will consider aspects such as cultural allusions, intertextuality, aesthetics, ideological subtext, language and recurring motifs that contribute to visualising the diverse allegories of the feminine found in Esteban Erlés' work.

Publisher Statement:Microtextualidades. Short Story and Flash Fiction International Journal is an online journal of biannual periodicity that publishes scientific collaborations of national and foreign specialists about flash fiction and microfiction. It aims to contribute to the progress of scientific knowledge in the field of philological studies (Literature, History of Literature, Theory of Literature and Comparative Literature, Literary Criticism, Rhetoric and Poetics: studies of authors and works; Linguistics, Cultural Studies; Digital Humanities, etc.) and of communication from diverse perspectives. The journal accepts scientific papers, written in Spanish or English, that are the result of original and unpublished research, that are not being considered by other journals and have not been published or will be published in another publication, regardless of the language in which it is edited, both partially and completely. Likewise, the journal will take into account the topicality and interest of the topics addressed and will adopt a code of good practices to ensure compliance with the guidelines established by the reference scientific publications in the dissemination of research and the quality standards of Scientific Publications. The research papers presented can combine theoretical approaches with practical analysis and intertwine theoretical-literary and rhetorical-communicative approaches with the projection of results to the analysis and interpretation of a fixed corpus. The journal is open to the international scientific community.
