Resumen

RAMIREZ DE ARELLANO, Annette B.  y  ORTOLL, Servando. "Queridísima Frieducha"!... Cartas de Guillermo Kahlo a su hija Frida. La ventana [online]. 2010, vol.4, n.32, pp. 244-269. ISSN 1405-9436.

Between 1932 and 1933, Guillermo Kahlo penned dozen long letters to his daughter Frida, who was in the United States accompanying her husband, muralist Diego Rivera. These letters reveal an affectionate father, concerned about his daughter's welfare and intent on sparing her some of the effects of the personality traits which they shared. They also show a grieving and lonely Guillermo, having suffered the loss of his wife, Frida's mother. In addition, the letters reflect Frida's attempts to engage her father in activities that would distract him from his self-absorption. Guillermo's wicked sense of humor is manifested in his writing, as is his use of epistolary barbs to underscore his point of view.

Palabras llave : Frida Kahlo; Guillermo Kahlo; letters; father-daughter relationship.
