This work aims to demonstrate that the Orientalism and Occidentalism - being contradictory discourses-they are used in the same text by the Chilean writer Ines Echeverria, as a methodology or way for self definition. In her travel story to the East of the early twentieth century, she appropriates indistinct voices: a metropolitan voice according to European Orientalism, a Creole voice torn between hegemony and the periphery, and a more intimate discourse that can identify with the American voices. The author seeks to define her own voice through this contradictory game, in the middle of a world, a country, a society and a stratum with which she doesn't fully identifies.
