Summary
The aim of this paper is to point out the perceived particularity of individual literary figurations as thresholds of subversion of the ‘economy of the same’. The suggested reading considers various materialities of the text that can refer to the modes of performative structures, as well as to the interpretations of female gender identity positions. When the ‘essence’ of femininity is questionable and the status of gender related ideals relative, then different possibilities of gender performatives are those that generate gender imagery of this Kamov’s literary text.
Key words
performativity of gender; irony/humour; female literary figurations; Janko Polić Kamov
