Daneri, Carlos Argentino

Argentine poet, author of La tierra, character in Borges story

Fishburn and Hughes: "In 'The Aleph', a fictional character whose surname may be a contraction of, and a parodic allusion to, Dante Alighieri, the poet whose presence underlies the story. Like the Florentine master, Daneri had a vision of the whole of the universe which he sought to encompass in his poem. See Beatriz Viterbo, Augural Canto." (56)
