As Superfícies Raras da Escrita de Ruy Duarte de Carvalho

  • Sonia Miceli


In this article, I examine the ways in which literature and cinema interact in the work of Ruy Duarte de Carvalho, focusing on the cinematic writing of the poems of sinais misteriosos… já se vê… and the novel Os papéis do Inglês. In these texts, the cinematic image sometimes appears as a strange copy of reality, other times as a vision that creates other realities, and other times as something connected to memory. Cinema, with its visual and sound components, challenges the limits of literary language. At the same time it provides new possibilities for poetry and narrative, which emerge from their encounter with the language of cinema.
