Carlos Germán Belli e la sua poesia classica e anticlassica

Martha L. Canfield


This article tries to provide the reader with the fundamental elements for a journey through Carlos Germán Belli’s poetry. The analysis starts from his life and the artistic situation in which he began to write, followed by examination of the peculiar features of his poetry as well as his search for consolation in writing and the metaphorical constructions (the cud) created to explain the conflict between body and soul. In this analysis, the study of the relationship between classic and the avant-garde poetry is central, as is the close link between the modern and aesthetic criteria of the Old World, with which the author shapes a lexical and semantic mix, which allows him to express all the innate pain of humankind through topical themes with a unique exciting lyricism.
