Hominis Aurora is a collection of poems in three parts (sacred numerology of the beginning, evolution and end or the triangle as exemplification of the birth of knowledge) manifested in the metaphoric subtitles of Tempus, Ritualis and Communitas. The book embarks on a journey toward the telluric and the mystical, specifically within the transition between the prehistoric eras known as the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods. This time initiates the beginning of everything: the creation of language, the aura of thought, poetry in its ethereal stage, ferocious individualism, the formation of social groups, the beginning of human mythology, artistic expression, bellicose conflicts, the emergence of agriculture, immigration, man vs. nature, the seeds of ingenuity, and man facing his own existential reality and that of all others. Since no written history exists from which to construct that poetic world of human genesis, one must rely on investigation of the disciplines of archeology, fine arts and anthropology, These disciplines, especially art, were crucial in the elaboration of the book; which, to a great extent, is a love letter to the fine arts, as stated in the epigraph of the English poet William Wordsworth.

Hominis aurora es un poemario en tres partes (numerolog a sacra de comienzo, evoluci n y final o el tri ngulo como ejemplificaci n del nacimiento del conocimiento) manifestado en los subt tulos metaf ricos de Tempus, Ritualis y Communitas. El libro emprende un viaje hacia lo tel rico y lo m stico, espec ficamente dentro de la transici n de las eras de la prehistoria conocidas como el periodo paleol tico y neol tico. All se da el comienzo a todo: creaci n de la lengua, el aura del pensamiento, la poes a en su estado et reo, el individualismo aferrador, formaci n de los grupos sociales, inicio de la mitolog a humana, la expresi n art stica, los conflictos b licos, el surgimiento de la agricultura, la inmigraci n, hombre versus naturaleza, brote del ingenio y la realidad existencial del hombre ante's mismo y los dem's. Al no existir una historia escrita para construir aquel mundo po tico de la g nesis humana, se ha recurrido a investigar a trav's de las disciplinas de la arqueolog a, las artes pl sticas y la antropolog a. Estas disciplinas, en especial el arte, fueron cruciales en la revelaci n del libro. El libro, en gran medida, es una carta de amor a las bellas artes, como queda expresado en el ep grafe del poeta ingl's William Wordsworth
