The Tombeau of the Avant-gardes: the "pluralization of the possible poetics" as a contemporary critical paradigm

Marcos Siscar

This essay proposes a reading of Haroldo de Campos' "Poetry and modernity: from the death of art to constellation. The post-utopian poem", a text that attempts to decree the end of the avant-gardes at the same time that it carries out their critical and historical legitimation. The conflict between the survival of avant-garde values and the interpretation of the contemporary as a time of "plurality" (or "diversity") makes Campos' text a decisive historical event for the contemporary debate on poetry.

Haroldo de Campos; avant-garde; contemporary poetry; post-utopian poetry; diversity
