The tower, the house, the body, the world… are metaphors of the universe whose correlation (especially, boy-house-world) are symbols of the universe in M. Eliade. The book, books that are in the tower of Borges text are in fact the stories that populate our imagination, hence this symbolic link that we perceive in the texts cited by Borges, in the poem of A. Machado, in the story of Rapunzel, or in the legends of haunted towers, as in the current transmedia narrative taken as permeable media with the classics and with written culture in general.
