PORN PROPP: THE FABULOUS CATEGORIES OF SILVIA C. CARPALLO’S NARRATIVE

Abstract

Porn and erotic narrative has much in common with some narratological aspects of the fables, as Propp theorised in his study Morphology of the Folktale. The discourse that this production develops seems to be strongly normative because of the shock that sex produces in our hetero-dominant society. Silvia C. Carpallo’s narrative will be a case-study in order to define the level of conservatism that the erotic genre has. In my analysis I will make reference to the queer perspective, in particular to the Italian school with philosopher such as Michela Marzano and Lorenzo Bernini, continuators of the philosophical reflections of J. Butler, A. Cavarero and M. Foucault. The aim is to reflect onto contemporary Spanish erotic literature and its categories of thought in order to determine the conservative or destructive character of the norm.
