Abstract

Women have been present in electronic literature since its beginnings, although as Hayles pointed out, neither their presence nor their contributions have been sufficiently recognized. Therefore, this article focuses on one of the great and first digital poets with the aim of making known one of the women who revolutionized electronic poetry (e-poetry) in the Anglo-Saxon world, the London-based Spaniard María Mencía. We will show how his work is characterized by the study of language and the importance of multilingualism. To this end, three of his most representative works will be presented below, namely: Birds Singing Other Birds’ Song (2001), The Poem that Crossed the Atlantic (2015) and her last work, Invisibles Voices: Women Victims of the Colombian Conflict. The process of creation, the contribution of each of these works to the field of digital literature will be explained, in particular the importance he gives to his work as transnational and multilingual. Finally, it will summarize the most important aspects of María Mencía's poetics, how she began his work focusing on the materiality of language and how it has evolved to become more multilingualism and socially engaged.
