The research aims to deepen understanding about contemporary Brazilian poetry from the investigation of the phenomenon of the poetic visionarism in the work of Weydson Barros Leal. Whereas that, as moves towards contemporaneity, the visionary experience ceases to be exploited just as theme and now belongs to the field of discursive organization, raising in a commitment metalinguistic, we seek to establish and develop the notion that, today, we are faced with a metavisionarism, moment in which the visionary poetry, following the self-reflexive trend of modern poetry, performs a fold over itself; now is the language that is displayed, that becomes itself visionary. The visionary poet, especially after Rimbaud, is no longer the illuminated bard of yore, but someone deeply immersed in the darkness of the present and, by this condition, he explores the ambivalence between disenchanted and re-enchanted of his art and the world. This may have been the great lesson of Surrealism in its subsequent versions. In Brazil, Murilo Mendes is who will first take on this new posture with an original diction, not at all reducible to the surrealist model. So if are outlined the three guiding principles that sustain, in Brazil, the visionary contemporary poetry, especially the work of Weydson Barros Leal.
