Example text

In the beginning, Adam’s plágio [plagiary] unlike Huidobro’s poet’s “nueva era,” does not arise from years of meditation in work and fear. Instead, it springs spontaneously from greed and cunning mimicry: “Invejoso e macaco o primeiro homem resolveu criar também” [Envious and apelike the first man resolved to create too] (OI 201). The slave’s only duty is to serve as “exemplo das gerações futuras” [example for future generations] (OI 201). All the peoples of the ancient world become her admirers; she is in this sense not their slave but rather their mistress.

Although these internal urges are semiotic, their moment of articulation (the thetic moment, the speech act) is of necessity symbolic. The self is therefore limited in its ability to express its needs or desires. Poetry, however, can sometimes allow some of the semiotic nature to break out; this is a phenomenon that Kristeva equates with Mallarmé’s “The Mystery in Literature,” an interior, feminine realm of expression: Indifferent to language, enigmatic and feminine, this space underlying the written is rhythmic, unfettered, irreducible to its intelligible verbal translation; it is musical, anterior to judgement, but restrained by a single guarantee: syntax.

Such a relationship, in the context of the master and slave hierarchy, has been shown by Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar to be typically mythological: Like the metaphor of literary paternity itself, this corollary notion that the chief creature man has generated is woman has a long and complex history. From Eve, Minerva, Sophia, and Galatea onward, after all, patriarchal mythology defines women as created by, from, and for men, the children of male brains, ribs, and ingenuity. (12) Mário’s Adam produces Poetry from his tongue, a birth which, on the psychological level of language production, is more like Athena’s birth from Zeus’s headache than Eve’s birth from Adam’s rib.
