DORANTES MORENO, Adriana Irais. El sueño y la muerte en Nostalgia de la muerte, de Xavier Villaurrutia, o de cómo definirse por la indefinición. Valenciana [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.10, pp.211-231. ISSN 2007-2538.

The central theme of this analysis concerning Nostalgia de la muerte, by Mexican poet Xavier Villaurrutia, is the union between death and dream. His poetry takes place in dark and oneiric scenarios where the poet experiences a constant impossibility to identify himself and others. Death and dream, both elements with strong antecedents in Baroque and Romanticism are reworked in a proposal wherein, rather than exalting death, function as a reaffirmation of life.

Keywords : Villaurrutia; dream; death; otherness; life.
