La mansión de Araucaíma. Relato gótico en tierra caliente

Five people find refuge in a mansion in the tropics. The five characters seek to free themselves of their pasts –repressed memories and frustrations–, even as they find themselves trapped in their own fears and desires. Their fragile coexistence is transformed by the arrival of a beautiful young woman. In this work, Mutis sought to recreate, in a tropical setting, the violence and mystery of late-eighteenth-century English Gothic novels.

Los Cuadernos del palacio negro

Written during his incarceration in Lecumberri prison (the “black palace”) in Mexico City, these notebooks are a testimony to a traumatic experience. Mutis gathered together five significant tableaux from his fifteen months of imprisonment: five visions that abandon the traditional structure of the personal diary and its supposed relationship with reality.
