El paréntesis como arquitectura en Aub, Borges, Cervantes y Pessoa
(o dibujar signos ortográficos para construir espacios)
This chapter discusses parentheses as a graphic expression and its ability to delimit spaces within a text. We study, using exemplary cases, how parentheses have been inscribed with the aim of constructing spaces (verbal and architectural). The orthographic sign as a place, as a delimitation of boundaries and as primary architecture is also investigated in several works by Max Aub and Jorge Ibargüengoitia; Fernando Pessoa through Álvaro de Campos; William Faulkner as translated by Jorge Luis Borges and, in reversed chronology, also in Miguel de Cervantes and Anne Carson. In conclusion, the concept of parenthetic space is proposed as a denomination and is defined as a concept.
