To speak about Mexican female poets of our days implies, of course, to ask what it means "to be a woman" from poetry itself, but how much it has changed in the literary criticism, this definition? Gender studies show us a pendulum that goes from the radically different, where it is even spoken of one tried "invasion" of roles, to the fragmentary sense, in which the identity is only of the body, of the gesture, the glance in the multiple scene of the culture. This essay approaches this problem from the work of the main Mexican female poets of the XX century; is an hermeneutic exercise, based on the ideas of Roman Ingarden exposes on the world represented in La obra de arte literaria and in the notion of identity of Néstor García Canclini we have published before in Identidades en movimiento y Palabra en movimiento.
