    Abstract:
    Comentamos algunos elementos de autoengendramienento en el poema épico anglosajón ´Beowulf´. El motivo del autoengendramiento literario emerge espontáneamente allí a partir de la naturaleza misma de la narración—o quizá más bien vemos la emergencia natural de la narración artística a partir de las prácticas sociales que dieron lugar a ella, prácticas cuya traza queda registrada como parte de la obra misma. La arqueología de su génesis es así parte esencial de la obra memorable. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ English abstract: This paper comments some elements of self-begetting in the Old English epic 'Beowulf'. The motif of literary self-begetting emerges spontaneously out of the very nature of narration—or perhaps one should say that the poem registers the natural emergence of artistic narrative out of the social practices which gave rise to it, and whose trace is preserved as a part of the work itself. The archaeology of its own genesis is thus part and parcel of the memorable work of art.
