An Exit from the Dream House. Meeting with Carmen Maria Machado

An Exit from the Dream House. Meeting with Carmen Maria Machado

Host: Aldona Kobus

According to Carmen Maria Machado, we lack a suitable literary genre with which we can tell the story of violence in a relationship between two women. In a world where homophobic and transphobic attacks occur constantly, it is extremely difficult to address such a topic. In addition to social obstacles, there are also literary problems. Machado argues that language is an element that produces two kinds of effect: creative and destructive. How, then, to speak about this kind of violence? How to deal with social obstacles? How to make literature capacious and at the same time precise enough to fully express a painful experience, while simultaneously pointing out its causes and consequences?
