Sumario:Blanchot says what speaks in a writer is the fact that “he is no loger himself, he insn`t anyone any more”. In two poetry books by Jorge Leonidas Escudero –Dicho en mí (2008) y Cantos del acechante (1995)–, this vital experience appears in relationship with four subjects: the poetic creation, death, the search of truth or sense of life, and love. In this article we analyze two books that represent two vital instances of the poet: maturity and old age. We believe that in this journey a subtle textualized vital turn can be read through metaphors that we will analyze through the theory of Lakoff and Johson (1991).
