Author Biography

Matheus de Brito, CLP, University of Coimbra (Doctoral Program in Materialities of Literature) | IEL, State University of Campinas (Postgraduate Program in Literary History and Theory)

Matheus de Brito, brazilian, born in 1988, João Pessoa-PB. Student of “Classical and Vernacular Languages and Literatures” at Universidade Federal da Paraíba (2006-08), he came as a mobility student to the University of Coimbra, where he took his degree in “Portuguese” (2011). He has been working along with theory of literature and critical theory, especially the aesthetic ideas of Walter Benjamin and Theodor Adorno. His concerning pictures show themselves through the Philosophy-Aesthetics-Language constellation, to which the Materialities of the Literature provide a decisive prism. Subscribing to the hardly-that-old Rimbaud’s dictum, “Il faut être absolument moderne” (one must be absolutely modern), he also has some literary pretensions and related, which are compulsively documented at disformevazio (“shapelessvoid”, his blog).
