AbstractPos/modernidad y (multi)forma en la obra de dos poetas mexicanos contemporaneos: Alberto Blanco y Coral Bracho studies the effects of modernity in Contemporary Mexican poetry. According to literary critics such as Evodio Escalante and Christopher Dominguez, Blanco and Bracho in their radical experimentation of poetic language create a multiform that concedes diverse possibilities of expression. This dissertation is theoretically backed by the works of Nestor Garcia Canclini and Edward O. Wilson, which allow me to underscore the importance and influence of politics, economics, and culture in these Mexican poets. Chapter Two analyzes twenty-two poetic anthologies with the intention of demonstrating the effects of posmodernity in poetic production and diffusion as well as to create a historiographic approach to the generation of poets from the 50s. Chapters Three and Four observe the poetic multiform in the works of Blanco and Bracho respectively. This analysis in grounded in the theoretical insights of Edward O. Wilson that explain how Consilience is the unity of knowledge through science and humanities. Consequently, Blanco explores the various theories of Physics, specifically the fractals and the hologram, while Bracho follows the discourse of Deleuze and Guattari about Rhizomes.
