Cantos Ocidentais (1880), machadian poetry in Revista Brasileira

Antônio Marcos Sanseverino About the author

This paper presents the study of Cantos ocidentais, six poems published in Revista Brasileira in January 1880, in the same issue that came out in the first nine chapters of Memórias póstumas de Brás Cubas. Based on the reading of "Suave mari magno" in relation to "A nova geração" (1879), we propose an analysis of Machado’s poetry that is not so classic or Parnassian, but rather, modern.
