Da Migração E Do Exílio Na Poesia De Pedro Da Silveira, Francisco Cota Fagundes

Francisco Cota Fagundes

This study focuses on the themes of migration (in contradistinction to emigration) and exile in the poetry of Pedro da Silveira. Attention will be focused on poems related to the migrant experiences of departure and re-entry, and on insular and extra-insular exile, the latter category bearing a close relationship to what we here term the search for the island, a search that results, in the opinion of this reader, in some of the most noteworthy thematic innovations in the Silveiran poetic oeuvre.
