Translation in an Intermedial Time : the translation of the contemporary Brazilian poet Antonio Moura for readers in Britain

Tobler, Stefan 2010 (has links)
This thesis comprises two parts. The first part is the translation of a selection of the contemporary Brazilian poet Antonio Moura's poems into English. The translational work is threefold: to create literary translations of the poems on the page, to create the materials and concept to allow readers without Portuguese to read and translate Moura's poems themselves, and to create a concept for the presentation of Moura's poems beyond the standard typographical page, this visual presentation is primarily in the form of an exhibition, but also considers the graphic and typographic presentation of translated poetry in book form. Accompanying the translational work, the critical chapters of the PhD examine various areas that bear on this translation project. These include contemporary poetry in Brazil, Britain and elsewhere and literary influences on Moura, leading into a detailed study of his poetry; questions oftextuality and how a text becomes a number of variants; wider perspectives on contemporary arts and literature, particularly in regard to multi-media (or: intermedia) arts, as well as the related stimulus of non-categorizing thinking that can be seen clearly in pre-literate societies; and an examination and commentary on my translational practice in the first part of this thesis.

Uma didática da invenção : re-envisioning the material world in the poetry of Manoel de Barros

Smith, David Peter Woodhead 2016 (has links)
The poetry of Manoel de Barros has often been characterized as part of a regional canon. This characterization belies its importance not only within the confines of the Brazilian canon, but as a contribution to C20 literature in general. Barros's poetry explores themes which are crucially important to navigating our existence in the modern world, and this thesis focuses on his engagement with the natural and material world. Drawing on theories from post-modern critical thinking and eco-criticism, I demonstrate how Barros's poetry can not only be read in the light of these critical idioms, but frequently expands upon or confounds them, revealing poetry as a form of modern critique - and indeed perhaps the most pertinent and incisive form of critique available to us when dealing with questions of materiality, reality and the natural world.
