Literature is far more than skillfulness with words. Far more than words, than writing or reciting. Literature is a logic of arrangement; a gesture; an attitude. It does not require what is commonly known as language. It does well without words. (As one may have learned from Emily Dickinson, a herbarium may well be a poetry book.)


In a lecture by Mário Gomes the question of the boundaries of literature are to be explored. Where does the literary terrain end – or does it end at all? The lecture is followed by a performance by Érica Zíngano.
