Este artículo se centra en la interacción entre homosexualidad y prisión en la novela del cubano Carlos Montenegro titulada “Hombres sin mujer” (1938). A partir de una aproximación sociológica al hecho literario, se analizan estructuralmente las nociones y prácticas homosexuales carcelarias, teniendo en cuenta especialmente sus componentes y la creación de categorías auto-explicativas o etnocategorías, el orden en el que se constituyen estos elementos y los conflictos que los animan. Finalmente, se concluye considerando la noción de homosexualidad carcelaria como tragedia con la que se cierra la obra This article aims to focus on the interaction between homosexuality and prison in the novel by the Cuban writer Carlos Montenegro, titled Hombres sin mujer (1938). From a sociological approach to literature, we structurally analyze the homosexual notions and practices in a particular Cuban jail. In this regard, we specifically explain their components and the creation of self-explicative categories or ethnocategories. Furthermore, the order which constitutes these elements and the conflicts that dynamize them are studied. Finally, the article concludes considering the notion of homosexuality in prison as a tragedy; an idea that closes the novel.
