ZALDIVAR, María Inés. Altazor: A fall that lingers in time. Universum [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.2, pp.177-187. ISSN 0718-2376.

This article presents a posible reading of Altazor, by Chilean writer Vicente Huidobro, a poem which was initially published in 1931, becoming a fundamental and founding work in the Chilean literary canon. This personal reading inscribes itself into the critical reception which has devoted its attention to the Altazorian fall over the years. This approach takes as its central concern the consciousness that the speaker in the poem possesses of the phenomenon of language and its difficulty in granting meaning to poetry.

Keywords : Chilean Poetry; Vicente Huidobro; Altazor; Critical Reading; Poetic Language.
