What can we read in Clarice Lispector? Sublimation and the feminine

In this paper, I try to read in Clarice Lispector's writing certain ways of subjectivation of the feminine (and not a feminine signification of her work). This approach has led me to a revision of the concept of sublimation and to see the text a locus in which the jouissance inscribes itself by the voice. What is at stake in her texts is the display of the manque à être of the subject, and not the appropriation of the ego. The primary function of writing is the inscription of the jouissance in the text.
