Summary: Pain and melancholy are those adjectives that define the somber poetry of Cuban poet Julián del Casal (1863-1893). His poetry becomes an intimate manifest about the body-his own and the other’s-that is described through each sense, especially the gaze. The sensuality of his words and the (homo) erotism of his verses go beyond the social and political body of Latin American XIX century, by daring to break its traditionalist barriers. In conclusion, and through his poetry, Casal transforms the erotic body of a subject into an extension of the XIX century Cuban political body.
