The following paper reviews a topic that is not always considered when it comes to the poetry of Jorge Teillier: Childhood, presented in the figure of a boy, who becomes subject, a kind of blind person's guide that shows the reader a poetic living space inhabited especially by children; a place that can be reached through a mirror. This unique space turns out to be dazzling, bright and multicultural. It is reinforced by the intertextual presence of children's literature. Childhood, at the end, is reaffirmed as a time and space for personal and aesthetic realization.
