This article considers Jimena Néspolo’s novel Episodios de cacería (2015) and analyzes how the woman’s body becomes the ground of struggle from which is possible to elaborate a subversive critique of the lines of knowledge and subjectivity governed by power structures based on the concordance between logo-centrism and phallus-centrism. At the same time, the study analyzes how the mythological tradition related to the myth of Artemis provides the story with the “structure” (Durand, 2004) argumentative and symbolic that is reformulated in a dystopian diegesis with a utopian impulse, and that conveys the decolonizing and subversive process. Based on the definitions of Linda Hutcheon (1980) and Patricia Waugh (1984), the next step becomes the consideration of the metafictional feature of the text, through which it is possible to relate the writing with the concept of “flesh” (Merleau-Ponty, 2010), that unites and separates the individual body from the social world in which it is inserted.
