An investigation is made of the symbolic constellations (Durand, 1993, 2012; Garagalza, 1990) that allow the maximum use that Bellatin makes of the artificial and malleable character and, therefore, mutant of the identity, privileging diverse manifestations of the myth of the initiatory journey, above all, those carried out both by the terrestrial migrant and by the ultra-terrestrial. With regard to the latter, a homology between the entrance to the Beyond or the Mundus Imaginalis and the processes of fictionalization is proposed. En el marco de una lectura simbólica, este trabajo busca dar cuenta de la conciencia del carácter ficcional de toda identidad en la narrativa de Mario Bellatin, en particular en los textos Jacobo el mutante, El libro uruguayo de los muertos y La mirada del pájaro transparente. Se realiza una indagación de las constelaciones simbólicas (Durand, 1993, 2012; Garagalza, 1990) que posibilitan el aprovechamiento máximo que Bellatin efectúa del carácter artificial y maleable y, por ende, mutante de la identidad, privilegiando diversas manifestaciones del mito del viaje iniciático, sobre todo los realizados tanto por el migrante terreno como por el ultraterreno. Con respecto a este último, se plantea una homología entre el ingreso al Más Allá o al Mundus imaginalis y los procesos de ficcionalización.    Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Universidad Nacional de Cuyo 2020-07-11 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion Artículo evaluado por pares application/pdf https://revistas.uncu.edu.ar/ojs3/index.php/boletingec/article/view/1812 Boletín GEC; Núm. 25 (2020): Miscelánea; 63-92 2618-334X 1515-6117 spa https://revistas.uncu.edu.ar/ojs3/index.php/boletingec/article/view/1812/2664
