TESCHE ROA, Paula Isabel y SANCHO CRUZ, Noemí Pamela. Agonising bodies: representations of death in three Chilean poets. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2012, n.26, pp.101-113. ISSN 0716-5811. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112012000200007.
This paper discusses the experience of agony and death representations in the poetic voice of Jorge Torres's Poemas Renales, Enrique Lihn's Diario de Muerte and Gonzalo Millán's Veneno de Escorpión Azul. The analysis considers the contributions of psychoanalysis and literary semiotics. Psychoanalytic theory privileges the understanding of the subject of the text, and the interpretation of the signifiers and meanings linked to the representations. The poetic voice reflections have a testimonial character that allows a greater semiotic range and presents complexity scriptural projects. The selected texts from the poetry bring us together to rethink such an intense experience as the proximity of death understood as a limit and as appreciation of life.
