At the center of Gherasim Luca’s surrealist imagination, the unborn woman is both, idea and reality of desire. We can find this idea in the poems published in Alge magazine, starting with 1933, that refers to the myth of the eternal feminine symbolized by the fascinating Barbară and the other tales Pătrundere, Deve‑ lopări, or the most disturbing Femeia Domenica d’Aguistti, in one of the most violent versions of the female body in the guise of monstrous; to finally get to The unborn woman of The Inventor of Love, representing the enigma that arouses love and desire in those who worship her and would like to release her in relation to a man who is no longer constrained by the totalitarian castration complex of Oedipus. The reality of the woman’s body is a physical reality of desire. The unborn woman and her body represent the place of language and silence for Gherasim Luca, the place where the word really finds its place. From Jacque Lacan’s perspective, the woman’s poetic body represents a need of love which dyna‑ mically stands sideways from desire. If the woman, according to Freud, is a puzzle, we talk about where religion and psychology stop, with Gherasim Luca we can say that The unborn woman is the place of language, the place where the word finds it’s real place. The invention of The unborn woman is the secret of the poetic miracle, revealed by Luca, who allows the human subject to experience the language when interacting with the absolute alterity which later contains it. Starting with the female body and the female as an idea, Luca will theorize the poetic and philo‑ sophic concept of the desire to be desired. Desire will be, as for Lacan, the essence of human being. If the feminine body is the object of sexual impulses, object represented by the complexity of partial objects of impulses derived from this desire, The unborn woman becomes the main point of attraction which represents the cause of this desire. Desire, as we know from Freud, is uncon‑ scious; in reality, it is related to a lack of something. If the desire seems to refer to an object, it is always at the cost of illusion. Upon Luca, there will be no contradictions between The unborn woman and the female body because the desire doesn’t know what it wants. Desire has no object, or rather it’s purpose is infinite and is beyond any imaginable or conceivable limited purpose.
