Cornejo I

This now famous note was originally commissioned by me, and stolen by two different people, so we will study it now, piece by piece.

No hace mucho Fernández Retamar alertó contra los peligros implícitos en la
utilización de categorías provenientes de otros ámbitos a los campos culturales y literarios. El préstamo metafórico y/o metonímico puede conducir a confusiones sin cuento. Por mi parte recuerdo que un sector nada desdeñable de las rigideces estéticas del marxismo provino de la lectura denotativa de lo que en realidad eran metáforas extraídas de la ciencia del XIX: un ejemplo basta, el concepto de “reflejo”.

Assignment: study the concept of “reflejo.”

Axé.

    What was a reflejo in 19th century science, taken later as a metaphor . . .

    I need help. First, let’s look at another paragrapy
