Abstract

This work traces Gabriela Mistral's epistolary files, with a special emphasis on the signs that place senders and receivers in queer times and spaces. Focused, as she was, on the initial stage of her career, this research demonstrates how Mistral rehearses rhetorical strategies that allow her, first of all, to stage a type of queer friendship (virile friendship) and, from there, establish relationships of affective exchanges (queer sociability) with scholars from the Americas, particularly with Alberto Nin Frías, her first diplomatic and openly homosexual friend.
