Revisiting the Code: The Vortical Transparency of the Space
On Natália Correia’s PoetryPDF
In this article we intend to explore the author’s ability to transform, subvert and recreate (spatial and/or cultural) referents that the reader recognises immediately but are presented in a disconcerting manner, always implying a critical and epistemological re-evaluation. Irreverence, an indispensable engine in Natália Correia’s poetics, is interstitially insinuated in the smallest details called for, whether they be the explicit reference to places or the appropriation of different styles. In O progresso de Édipo, Sonetos Românticos or O Anjo do Ocidente à Entrada do Ferro, Epístola aos Iamitas and many other volumes, we find the same transgression of the code, the same (ir)reverence, the same complicity with the reader.
