Rimbaud in Manoel de Barros' Poetics

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Manoel de Barros; Arthur Rimbaud; Une Saison en Enfer; Brazilian Modernists.

In his search for a language able to express the mysterious brotherhood between man and Nature, the Brazilian poet Manoel de Barros reconnects with the great tradition of French "poètes maudits" and, in particular, with Arthur Rimbaud's work. In the essay I will try to demonstrate, by textual comparison, how a few of De Barros' most famous poems echo various passages of Rimbaud's masterpiece "Une Saison en Enfer" in both literal and creative ways. In de Barros' work, this poetic heritage is enriched by Brazilian Modernism's language experimentation.
