Poéticas modernistas e os discursos das ciências
Filomena Aguiar de Vasconcelos
AbstractModernist poetics are largely influenced by important scientific changes that took place in the western world in the early decades of the 20th century. Questions raised by a new perception and knowledge of reality and truth mainly in the fields of mathematics and physics, together with a new philosophical altitude, brought along a linguistic and literary openess to innovating ways of conceiving language in its various and multiform functions and uses. Apart from a theoretical approach to the subject, and and occasional reference to the Portuguese modernist poet Mário de Sá-Carneiro, special emphasis is given to some English modernist writers like Joyce, Eliot and Pound.
