Although the author Dulce Chacón is probably most famous for her novels, Cielos de barro (2000) and La voz dormida (2002), she wrote three other works that are important precursors to her later critically acclaimed books: Algún amor que no mate (1996), Blanca vuela mañana (1997) and Háblame, musa, de aquel varón (1998). The present study would argue that Chacón’s novels all provide important commentary on the place of women in their corresponding society and that they often characterize women as being trapped or imprisoned, both literally and figuratively. It is through the epistolary genre that the feminine figures in Chacón’s novels are able to rebel against their confinements and constraints. Thus it is that this intimate type of writing becomes a transgression that allows them to break free of their imprisonment and to gain a place in the memory of those that read their letters.
