Mujer y geografía son los dos elementos que serán estudiados en este trabajo, porque más allá de la historia contada, se puede afirmar que ambos articulan la identidad del sujeto poético y su visión de mundo en el último ciclo creativo del poeta. Será el espacio representado el elemento abordado con mayor detenimiento en este análisis, puesto que su estudio permitirá luego una mejor comprensión del rol que le cabe al personaje femenino en la fábula.
Interest in literature, culture, and thought, although deeply rooted in ancient traditions, emerges as a modern issue sustained by contemporary theories of language and cognition. This thesis aims to bring together the study of poetry and current debates regarding the centrality of metaphor within the cognitive paradigm as approached by Cognitive Poetics. The purpose is to show that underlying Neruda’s poems, particularly his poetic love metaphors, there is a consistent structure that ties together his conceptualisation of emotion. This structure is a folk cognitive model: the Model of Love that is activated by certain conceptual metaphors via various love scenarios throughout the poet’s love lyric. This investigation moves away from the purely tropological interpretations characteristic of previous analyses that emphasise critics’ own coherent prototypical readings. After Amado Alonso (1940), studies on Neruda’s language tend to highlight the rhetorical nature of his literary style. It is the aim of this thesis to put forward an original interpretation of the poet’s love language that brings closer literature and emergent theories of cognition from an interdisciplinary stance. The thesis is divided into three chapters. Following the Introduction, Chapter 1 reviews a series of central points concerning salient theories of metaphor, and its current status in contemporary thought. Attention is focused on its phenomenological and epistemological implications, such as the entrenchment of the emotion of love in human physiology and in environmental factors, and its embodiment in the poetic love lexicon. This is achieved in Chapter 2 through the analysis of an ontology of cases from the poet’s book CSA in order to highlight what central metaphors evoke a series of love scenarios. Chapter 3 presents the Model of Love with attention to its genesis, functioning, and characteristics. The ideas behind this investigation are in tune with the work by literary criticism, although

Este trabajo de investigación trata de la incidencia de la naturaleza en la poesía de Pablo Neruda y Nicanor Parra. Interesa particularmente las relaciones que el poeta establece con la naturaleza en distintas etapas de su obra, dentro de las cuales la concepción de naturaleza queda establecida según como el creador va creando vínculos con las diferentes formas de la materia que reinan en la naturaleza. Se tratará esclarecer los elementos principales que inciden en el espacio natural, como por ejemplo, de qué manera la presencia temporal configura al espacio natural haciendo surgir, crecer y desintegrar toda materia existente en él. El objetivo de la investigación es encontrar las diferencias y similitudes en cuanto al tratamiento del espacio natural que cada autor propone a lo largo de toda su obra, tomando en cuenta que la obra de Pablo Neruda se inserta dentro del marco de una lírica moderna (1904-1973), mientras que la obra de Nicanor Parra (1914- ) se inserta más bien dentro del ámbito postmoderno de la poesía chilena, quebrando con los moldes de hacer poesía con los antipoemas.
