Abstract

This research internship project aims to expand and deepen the research carried out during the first 12 months of scientific research on the work of Ana Cristina Cesar. If in the current moment of the investigation in progress in Brazil we intend to investigate the procedures employed by the author with the purpose of conferring a type of corporeity to his writing, or at least to expose the clash that it hangs with the limits of the language, the research stage under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Michel Riaudel would enable us to expand the tools for such research, since the intention is to understand how the influence of certain French literature and philosophy starts to foment this kind of restlessness in the writing of Ana Cristina Caesar. In addition, considering that Riaudel not only wrote his doctoral thesis on the work of Ana C., which is now a crucial reference for studies on the author, but also translated part of her work into French, we wish to carry out a study about Ana Cristina Cesar's own considerations about such practice.Declared reader of French poets who come to inaugurate the notion of modern poetry, like Baudelaire, Rimbaud and Mallarmé, Ana C. deals with such influences in an intensely authorial way, incorporating aspects of the writing of others to its own to form a particular voice in a process of appropriation, re-elaboration and criticism. Starting from such considerations, we can then trace a network of influences of both French thought and modern French poetry on the work of Ana Cristina Cesar, which absorbs and reformulates its premises. The research internship under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Michel Riaudel will give the opportunity to further investigate the author's relationship with such references, since his doctoral thesis entitled Intertextualité et Transferts (Brésil, Etats-Unis, Europe): Réécritures of La Modernité Poétique dans l'oeuvre d'Ana Cristina Cesar (Rio de Janeiro, 1952-1983) (2007), endeavors, among other things, to map and analyze closely such correspondences between works that, outside the portuguese language, are largely French and English-speaking, in order to discover a kind of reception and re-elaboration of modern poetry by Ana Cristina Cesar through her own work.
