This work analyzes the representations of childhood in Enrique Lihn's work, taking as a point of item The dark room (1963) and other texts selected of his later production. From the perspective of an adult speaker who lives through a present in ruins, characterized by the distress, the disappointment in love and the inability to be abided by the procedure that govern the social life, the subject of these poems returns towards the childhood that appears him in a ghostly way and places in it to find an explanatory reason, but also to place it as a propitious time and space for the poetical creation across the figure of the elderly child narcissist.
