DANTAS, Tatianne Santos  and  MOSCHEN, Simone Zanon. Writing, trace and absence in a amiga genial de Elena Ferrante. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp. 1-14. ISSN 2359-0769.

In this article, we intend to resonate with psychoanalysis the effects of reading the book A amiga genial de Elena Ferrante. We find in this novel, especially in the Prologue Erasing the Traces, the possibility of tracing a path that allows us to mobilize elements capable of circumventing the Freudian proposition that the mnemic traits that constitute the psychic apparatus are inscribed as the result of an erasure. The text that draws us from Lacan›s work with Daniel Defoe›s novel Robinson Crusoé, a work that mobilizes the movement of absence-presence-absence as a condition of a symbolic record, will also interest this text. The disappear rance of the character Lila Cerullo, narrated in the opening pages of Ferrante›s novel, will allow us to think about the relationship between loss and literary creation. The significant trace, which makes up the title of the prologue to The Ingenious Friend, indicates the catwalk that allows the Italian writer's thoughts and Freudian formulations of the unconscious to be brought into contact. It is in the wake of this signifier that we spread the relationship with literature to glimpse what contemporary fiction can say for psychoanalysis.
