Sample text

Differing from Mário’s Adam, 13 Introduction Huidobro’s poet already possesses a link to the unconscious through his “preciosos sueños y delicadas pesadillas” (715). Both authors cast Adam in the dynamics of a slave and master relationship to show the interplay of the conscious and unconscious elements of the creative act, leading to the possible reconciliation of the self with the other. • Gender Roles and Duality Another dimension of the self-other dialectic can be scrutinized in the relegation of gender roles.

Os romanos o peplo. Qual lhe dava um colar, qual uma axorca. Os indianos, pérolas; os persas, rosas; os chins, ventarolas” [The Greeks ended up giving her the buskin. The Romans, the peplum. Somebody gave her a necklace, somebody else an arm ring. The Indians, pearls; the Persians, roses; the Chinese, fans] (OI 202). The layers of clothing pile up over the centuries to a stifling excess, symbolizing the decadence of previous poetry.
