This text is a diachronic reading of some voices and problems in contemporary Chilean poetry under the concept of epiphanic images. This category is understood as the use of images that manifest, appear or reveal as a way to illuminate or respond to a reality that by itself is difficult to define. The corpus addresses diverse poetic voices from Gonzalo Rojas to our current days, generating a discussion about some of the ways of conceiving poetry that lasted during the second half of the 20th century and that mutated with the most recent poetics that reread the past and visualize the present from a residual scope. It is concluded that a preponderant conception of current poetry is one that cannot be separated from a critical function that attempts to give name to the complex present of postdictatorial Chile.
