dc.description.abstract[eng] Women's mental health has been redefined in several ways throughout history. Within the frame of fiction, female characters constantly undergo stigmatized categorizations that present their madness as a product of pathological conditions. Michel Foucault’s Mental Illness and Psychology (1962) illustrates the concept of madness as a social and cultural construction and explains that its conceptions may change according to the values of each historical period. The present paper aims to approach women’s madness and its evolution in history by analyzing two female characters using Foucault’s theory as the principal focus. The selected novels are Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre (1847) and Sally Rooney’s Normal People (2018). In addition, the female characters in these works of fiction will be re-examined and re-located in order to deconstruct the archetype of the Mad Woman and its evolution.eng

El objetivo de este trabajo es abordar la locura de la mujer y su evolución en la historia a partir del análisis de dos personajes femeninos utilizando como eje principal la teoría de Foucault. Las novelas seleccionadas son Jane Eyre (1847) de Charlotte Brontë y Normal People (2018) de Sally Rooney. Además, los personajes femeninos de estas obras serán reexaminados y reubicados para deconstruir el arquetipo de la locura femenina y su evolución.spa
