Antologia di poesie e testi teorici brasiliani, con scritti di Augusto de Campos, Haroldo de Campos e Décio Pignatari

a cura di Sergio Romanelli


In the light of the current debate concerning the nature and function of textual aesthetic information in its relationship with the visual dimension, this anthology consists of theoretical and creative texts by the three founders of the Brazilian concrete poetry group and periodical known as Noigandres. The translations by Sergio Romanelli, Silvana de Gaspari, Patricia Peterle and Andrea Santurbano for the first time give Italian readers the opportunity of reading four texts dating from the 1950s up to the present available in Portuguese in the collection Teoria da poesia concreta: textos críticos e manifestos (1965), consisting of a short essay by Décio Pignatari dealing with concrete art (arte concreta: objeto e objetivo) and a statement (depoimento) on the function of poetry; a useful definition of the specific domain of concrete poetry (Poesia concreta) by Augusto de Campos and finally the extraordinary creative poetic manifesto: olho por olho a olho nu (manifesto) by Haroldo de Campos.
