    The novel The Obscene Bird of Night (El obsceno pájaro de la noche) by Chilean authorJosé Donoso parabolizes man's relationship with language and the world. The text estranges man and world, thereby emphasizing the ordering nature of their intermediary, of language. Man devoid of language sees and hears, that is, perceives, but the process of "receiving through" the senses remains a passive. The Obscene Bird of Night depicts the limits and constraints of our lives—any and all of them—as physical spaces. These places, most represented quite viscerally, are primarily the following: a building, one’s country, the womb, the body, one’s skin (as opposed to the body), socio-economic class, one’s family, and of course the book.
