NOMEZ, Naín. The utopias of Memory: the search for transcendence in the poetry of David Rosenmann-Taub. Aisthesis [online]. 2011, n.50, pp. 172-188. ISSN 0718-7181. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-71812011000200009.
The following article attempts to develop one of the main topics present in the work of Chilean poet David Rosenmann-Taub: the search for transcendence through his poetic discourse, rooted in the memory to exorcize the presence of death. This search, in its themes and discourses, is produced by the displacement of the text's subjects towards an origin, visualized as the nostalgia from a lost paradise that unfolds in the reencounter with family, friends, divine symbols and the roots of nature. In this task, the poet uses discursive strategies to exorcize the territory of death, attempting to prevent a journey towards pain, emptiness or nothing through the recognition of life and transcendence as well as through an imaginary upturn to a «country beyond», where past and future converge.
