Image and Word: Five Poetries of Concretism

Concretism, an avant-garde literary current that began in 1956, had as creators the São Paulo poets Décio Pignatari and the brothers Augusto and Haroldo de Campos. Concretist poetry drastically broke with the discursive structure of traditional verse, proposing the creation of free poetry of any subjectivity and any intimacy, continuing the aesthetics so defended by the poet João Cabral de Melo Grandchild.

Geometrization and visualization of language: this is the poetic conception of Concretism, a movement that appropriated procedures adopted by leading European currents, especially Futurism and Cubism. This stylistic rescue established an interesting dialogue with another avant-garde, Modernism, a movement led by the also triad: Manuel Bandeira, Oswald and Mário de Andrade. Just like in the heroic phase of Modernism, the concretist poets sought a new language and, for this, they used various supports and technical means, among them books, magazines, newspapers, posters, videotext, holography, among other resources that transformed the poet into an artist plastic.
