SIMON, Iumna Maria and DANTAS, Vinicius. Negativo e ornamental: um poema de Carlito Azevedo em seus problemas. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2011, n.91, pp. 109-120. ISSN 0101-3300. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002011000300006.
The article considers the compositional strategies from a poem by Carlito Azevedo, "Na noite física" [In the physical night] (1996), that takes its lead from and incorporates an untitled poem by Charles (1985). The transformations reveal the intertextual play of a contemporary poet, in which the textual erotization covers up, so to speak, its subject, leaving implicit its violent character. The article then discusses the position of the subject resulting from the dissolution of the referent, especially the aesthetization that follows from a verbal spectacle made with the anti-illusionist elements of modern poetry.
Keywords : Contemporary poetry; Brazilian poetry; Carlito Azevedo; intertextuality.
