The issue of otherness may arise from the problem posed by the relationship between self and others, or from the conflict can represent communication between men. Anyway, the other is there, and this condition may involve a confrontation in communication processes or encourage reflection on the way the body works in relation to the other. Hence the configuration of a reunion in the novel The Notebooks of Don Rigoberto by Mario Vargas Llosa, constitutes not only a denial of possible fractures in the communicative bridge between human beings, but also a way to give a special meaning to the body and eroticism of its own through a double narrative (verbal and visual) revealing two universes in which the most primitive communicative gesture is transmuted into a symbolic act of reconciliation. The novel by Peruvian writer plays an important role in reviewing the experience of otherness, to make way for an intertextual and metaphorical game between the paintings by the Austrian artist Egon Schiele and narrative become the protagonists of a loving family conflict.
