Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Cólera buey represents, through an anomalous language, the perception of a reality that is suffering a constant transformation process; but poetry fulfils a transformation function so as to alternate with poetry into a progressive game attaining on the exaltation of the pure action, and at the same time it presents the poem as the paradigmatic form of the process that starts at the inner depths where only language exists and culminates with a polysemic explosion of existence.
