dc.description.abstract In this paper I examine the political songs of Chilean poet and ethnomusicologist Violeta Parra. I propose that, throughout her career, Parra develops a mode of narration that is explicitly feminine. Over time, this narration is transformed in its scope, from a speaker who challenges the oppression of women at the individual and national level to one who confronts universal suffering. Parra’s female poetics also represents a conscious political project, as—questioning representations of women and constructions of truth—she reconfigures a variety of dominant discourses. By ignoring the feminine aspect of Parra’s work, the Latin American New Song movement, which succeeded Parra and drew inspiration from her, ended up perpetuating many of the same discursive oppressions that she criticized.
