MANSILLA, Sergio. “Words that end up in a river of useless poetry”: An approach to the poetics of Jaime Huenún, as seen through Puerto Trakl. Alpha [online]. 2011, n.32, pp. 11-27. ISSN 0718-2201. doi: 10.4067/S0718-22012011000100002.
Beginning with a reading of the collection Puerto Trakl, we discuss some key aspects of Jaime Huenún’s poetics, related to the cultural translations of his mestizo writing. Huenún’s literary proposal advances in the direction of constructing a modern mapuche-huilliche poetics, which makes modes of textualization that originate from indigenous and non-indigenous discursivities merge, descentralizing them in the process. In Puerto Trakl, what descenters are precisely the discursivities of the most canonic of modern international poetry.
