Example text

Why is it that Huidobro cannot resist this biblical allusion, which does not seem either obvious or necessary? The symbolic opening of the doors of a new era would suffice to deliver his basic message. The use of jasper, then, gives weight to Huidobro’s revolution by invoking that most final of revolutions, the apocalypse, and by providing a sacred context for his new poetry that could not have been implied from the revolt against Mother Nature. The poet, clearly on the winning side, reveals the revolutionary world that, by implication, is perfect and holy.

Mother Nature ends up as a “viejecita encantadora,” though still honored by the poet as he reveals his new era: “hinco una rodilla en tierra y te saludo muy respetuosamente” (716). The poet and his former mistress are now equals, and sometimes rivals, in the newly separated realms of art and nature. Mário’s “Parábola” presents a chain of slave and master relationships. Adam, although perhaps not the slave of God, of course reveres Him as his master. Adam is in turn the master of Poetry, since she is after all the “escrava” of the title, although she does not appear to serve him.

6 I base my decision to study the manifestos exclusively on the fact that they are the best and most concentrated of the author’s poetics texts. The majority of Huidobro’s other prose texts (Finis Britannia, Vientos contrarios, Artículos, his novels) do not concern themselves directly with a theoretical expression of his poetics. His articles on Menéndez y Pelayo, Benavente, Nervo, Darío, and Chocano in Pasando y pasando suggest Huidobro’s artistic leanings and preferences but do not discuss his own theoretical ideas.
