The article analyzes the work of Blanca Varela, the most important Peruvian poet of all time. He highlights the dichotomy between animal and human in his collection of poems Canto villano. The author is based, above all, on the proposal of Giorgio Agamben, who questions the opposition between animal and human to suggest that there is a continuity between both living beings. Likewise, the concept of anthropology machine is used for the analysis of Blanca Varela’s poetry.
