GUTIERREZ M., Iván  and  GUZMAN VALLEJOS, Pablo. Insectary inquiries in Cámara letal con acetato de etilo. Rev Cien Cult [online]. 2022, vol.26, n.49, pp.121-139.  Epub Nov 30, 2022. ISSN 2077-3323.

The transversal of hunger in the existence of insects in Cámara letal con acetato de etilo, by Mauro Gatica, appears to question the reading experience. The reader is confronted with a revision of the limits that separates his “humanity” from other existences, through the observation of the minuscule universe of the creatures that is amplified from the artifact of panoramic extension that is each poem. It is inevitable for the reader to reflect on language when, by the hand of Gatica’s writing, we cross the abyss that exists between what we observe of that alien world and our own perception.

Keywords : Insects; poetry; hunger; abyss; language; silence.
