A detailed study of Huidobro's early works from 1911-1916 (including El espejo de agua), delving into the leitmotifs, images, themes, rhetorical and stylistic devices. The question of literary influences is studied in a chronological framework taking into account the gradual development of his style. The sources treated here have been poorly studied or totally ignored in relation to Huidobro: the French Symbolists, the Cubists, the Spanish American Modernista Amado Nervo, the Spanish mystics Santa Teresa de Jésus and Fray Luis de León, the American Transcendentalist Emerson, and the Belgian Symbolist Georges Rodenbach.
