maría luisa bombal?s (1910-1930) la última niebla, first published in 1934, is not devoid of socio-political criticism. it fits into the category of novels which present unfulfilled female worlds. the unveiling of a private sphere in crisis makes possible the unfolding of a conscience; this in turn gives shape to a world detached from reality. this is a phenomenon which appears with great force in the narrative of chilean bourgeoisie women at the turn of the 20th century. in the case of bombal, it will acquire traits which are particularly confrontational, due -to great extent- to the irruption of eroticism as a constituent element of intimacy
