Abstract

GUERRERO VALENZUELA, Claudio. LA ANTROPOFAGIA COMO RITO FINAL DE LA INFANCIA EN EL REGRESO DE EFRAÍN BARQUERO. Rev. chil. lit. [online]. 2010, n.77, pp.75-94. ISSN 0718-2295.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22952010000200004.

This paper sets out to investigate the representations of childhood in El regreso by the Chilean poet of the 50s, Efrain Barquero. We propose that in this poem there is a scenic disposition where an adult -represented a child-, standing opposite his dead father, is about to carry out the anthropofagical rite of eating him up. By means of this cannibalistic act, the lyrical persona manages to close his childhood and to go on fully into adulthood.

Keywords : Barquero; Childhood; Cannibalism; Father; Ritual.
