This article analyzes Leonora Carrington’s Down Below from a dual perspective. First, we aim to provide an interpretative framework to contextualize Carrington’s literary production within the Surrealist avant-garde. Then, we examine the literary geographies of Carrington’s writing, offering a parallel reading of Down Below with The Hearing Trumpet, focusing on the interconnection between physical space and the body – a geography made of flesh, which can be analyzed according to the hermeneutical lines of neo-materialism.
