RAMIREZ ARBALLO, Alejandro. Savor and knowledge: from flesh to word. A re-reading of Abigael Bohórquez’s Digo lo que amo (1976). Connotas. Rev. crit. teór. lit. [online]. 2020, n.20, pp.9-29.  Epub 15-Feb-2021. ISSN 2448-6019.

Abigael Bohórquez’s work has recently found new readers, especially because of the publication of his complete works, edited by Dr. Gerardo Bustamante Bermúdez, by Instituto Sonorense de Cultura. This volume has in turn aroused new interest in the writer. This is highly beneficial because it entails the possibility of reading the Abigaelean work beyond the common places that the critics, many times pamphleteers and reductionists, have imposed during the last years. In accordance with this idea, this article approaches Digo lo que amo (1976), a fundamental book in the corpus of the Sonoran poet, seeking an interpretation based on the “carnal” variant proposed by the Irish philosopher Richard Kearney. In this way, the lyrical body deployed in Bohórquez’s poetry becomes an organ capable of mediating between the consciousness and the environment of the speaker. Thus, the appropriation of the interpreter’s world ceases to be exclusively intellectual to become an act, a rich, complex and above all meaningful experience.
