Resumen

GRAMUSSET, François. In Arreola's arc, flesh and word seek eah other (on his 1958 Bestiario [bestiary]). La Palabra [online]. 2015, n.26, pp.85-95. ISSN 0121-8530.

This article analyzes the zoological collection present in Juan Jose Arreola's bestiary. A close look at the imaginary universe of Arreola is achieved, in the first place by establishing a conversation between the Bestiario and Physiologos, an embrionary text for bestiaries of the Western tradition; and secondly through analysis of the text. In essence, the aim is to underline the way in which, through their lexicalization, these bestiary creatures embody imaginary representations, linked to primordial times. For this purpose we study three classification paradigms of animal flesh: earth, air, water. This classification attempts to account for the spiritual significance of the word in Arreola's book, as well as to show the way in which these bestiary animals symbolize human flesh, made possible through poetic language.

Palabras clave : Literary figurative language; zoology; symbol; animality; bestiary.
