The smooth transition between fiction and essay marked Julieta Campos' relation with the art of writing, from the very beginning; relation characterized by a worrying swing between reason and passion. In her own words: "Writing would be passing between the loneliness of the esthetic experience and the solidarity of the ethic experience.
