Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The article focuses on the representation of the image of death in the genre of literary skulls, satirical poems published in leaflets in Mexico in the Days of the Dead, from the nineteenth century. The diffusion and enormous success of this literary genre is also due to the illustrations of José Guadalupe Posada, famous and brilliant artist, who knew how to portray with great mastery the roots of the Mexican popular soul.
