This paper presents a reading of Enrique Lihn’s Diary of Death prioritising how the author inscribes the agony of the poetic subject in relation to the disease of the biographical subject, taking advantage of the possibilities that the autobiographical genre gives to represent death in a situated way and expose the limitations of language. Notion that Lihn developed in his literary work through self-reflexivity, situated poetry, foreignness and reflective intertextuality. Also this paper analyses the dislocation Lihn makes of the private journal, transgressing the space and time of enunciation.
