Sep 01, metaphor rated it liked it Shelves: My memory full of words my thoughts seeking phantoms my nightmares many nights overdue. I think that there can't be any Latin American surrealists, per se. Because surrealists lie so heavily on the idea of symbols to describe the real, the dream state imbibing Reality.
Selected Poetry, 1937-1990
But Latin Americans live amongst symbols, dwell within them. It is a dependency on symbols, that is never quenched. A sea populated with searches for new meanings. Surrealists are fishermen over this sea, but Latin American writers are so much a part of it; they are anenomes. With that, I give you Joao Cabral de Melo Neto, whose symbols are immense, but not caught in the dream.
Its morph is the understanding of its capacity--the life it leads is not described by its action, but by its relation to the action. The sea blew bells the bells dried the flowers the flowers were heads of saints This is not a simple tautology. It is an instantiation. And not of any of these specific terms; i. Rather it is a morphology of the mind which can only be represented by the metaphors which characterize the actions of the mind. The mind is like the sea like the bells like the flowers like the saints.
At dawn, my thoughts set free flew like telegrams and in windows lit through the night the portrait of the dead woman struggled desperately to flee. A poem of mind needs these metaphors, because otherwise it would have to be a treatise on the philosophical conondrum of expectation and wait. Here it is concisely, the sensation, as simple as pie: Same old story; but here, wicked imagery! Within the loss of memory a blue woman reclined hiding in her arms one of those cold birds that the moon floats late at night on the naked shoulders of the portrait.
And from the portrait two flowers grew two eyes two breasts two clarinets that at certain hours of the day grew prodigiously so that the bicycles of my desperation might run over her hair.
