GARCIA PEREZ, David. Reverberaciones grecolatinas del mito del Minotauro en Jorge Luis Borges y en Julio Cortázar. Nova tellus [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.1, pp.205-239. ISSN 0185-3058.
This paper contains a thematic comparison between the Grecoroman mythologem of Asterion-labyrinthus and his thematization in Jorge Luis Borges' tale "The House of Asterion" and in The Kings, a dramatic poem by Julio Cortázar. My scope is to perform an analysis of the resemantized components around the shaping of the figure of the Minotaur with a comparative approach: it deals then with the thematization of this personage as an antagonist in the Grecoroman mythologem looking to this configuration as a hero, philosopher and poet in the remakings by the above mentioned Argentinean writers.
