The allegory of the body as a prison of the soul was visually depicted as a skeleton that imprisons a figure with childish features. One of the earliest examples of this image is the emblem «Infelix ego homo!» included in Herman Hugo?s Pia Desideria (1624); however the pictura was incorporated in other media and contexts allowing its survival even to the end of the 19th century. In Mexico, it evolved from an ascetic-moralistic book to a popular pamphlet of ghostly apparitions revealed in dreams. How did this emblem ?based on Neoplatonic philosophy? evolve from a book written in Latin to a popular nineteenth century pamphlet? Did it conserve part of its original meaning? KEYWORDS Death; Soul; Hard Liquor; Mexico.
