SCRAMIM, Susana. Brazilian contemporary poetry criticism: old debates, other masks. Alea [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.1, pp.106-124. ISSN 1517-106X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-106X2012000100008.
This paper aims at reflecting on the Brazilian poetic output and its criticism, taking into account their histories. They are not treated as separate instances, but instead are considered to be the result of practices issuing from a common theory of Art. The starting point of the discussion is an article by Iumna Maria Simon and Vinícius Dantas, "Negativo e ornamental: Um poema de Carlito Azevedo em seus problemas", published in Novos Estudos do Cebrap, n.91, Nov. 2011.
Keywords : Brazilian contemporary poetry; criticism; Carlito Azevedo; Iumna Maria Simon.
