The territory that Pedraza's fiction best illuminates is, actually, the picture. whilst photographs stay mounted or territorialized, they uncannily infect the assemblages over which they exert impression. putting emphasis on pictures that influence ladies, Pedraza, in "Anfiteatro," for instance, deconstructs "cat woman," which, albeit a very likely subversive picture in its early manifestations, finally ceases to empower the female, lashing it, fairly, to a burdensome stereotype. Territorialized, the female needs to, then, cut loose from the picture to be able to observe representations extra able to illuminating present-day challenges.
The word "dark assemblages," drawn from Deleuze and Guattari's A Thousand Plateaus, gestures towards societal stagnation as a decisive think about person evolvement. Gothic fiction represents an asymmetric panorama, in that it tenders the potential of a social critique but, both good, lends itself to the exclusion of particular identities and practices that society manufacturers as anomalous. Pedraza's Gothic fiction is, certainly, subversive, in that it deals readers unique perceptions of recent day humans and the assemblages, darkish or differently, to which they belong.
