OBSCÉNICA: Bufólicas

Hilda Hilst is, with Clarice Lispector, one of the greatest brazilian writers of the 20th century. She is the author of an eclectic body of work, including ficcion, poetry and theater. She also wrote some erotic texts “to amuse herself”. Hilda Hilst wrote for almost fifty years, and granted the most important Brazilian literary prizes. This section is part 2 of an anthology called Obscénica and contains texts written between 1991 and 1992.

Bufólicas is a queer combination of poetry, fables, vulgar language, traditional themes and erotic figures. The mixture is comedic and its effect is empathized by the figurative and thematic parallelism between poetry and fairy tales. Orality is also an important element just like the use of slang words. Bufólicas is one of the most intriguing works of Hilda Hilst.

This body of work was distinguished by the society of Illustrators, NY.
