[Letter to Dom Sylvester Houedard 26.10.63] / De Campos, Augusto; Webern A; Mallarme S; Maurus H; Herbert G; Herrick R; Garnier P; Chopin H; Corman C; Pound E., 1963

Identifier: CC-14908-15221
Scope and Contents

DeCampos responds to a classification system proposed by Houedard by pointing out "visual organization of words, with an overemphasis on relations of proximity and resemblance between them, leads ineluctably to an equivalent overemphasis on sound, implying a dynamical use of paronomasia and alliteration that explains why Brazilian young musicians have been so much interested in many of our seeming eyepoems, and in the making of oral presentations for them." He states he wrote to Hugh Kennerabout Ezra Pound and received a sympathetic response. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
