Languages of publication
The paper analyses one of the Gellu Naum’s poetic masterpieces, Vasco da Gama. The main aim is to reconstruct Naum’s aesthetic premises that lead him to transform the images to reveal the real nature of the poetic objects. The theoretical background for Naum is created by the André Breton’s essay Crise l’objet (1936). The article presents the crucial imperative in the Romanian Surrealism leader’s Nuca terorizează orasele. Eliberarea obiectului suprarealist în Vasco da Gama de Gellu Naum 219 appeal, the object to be stripped of cretinizing uniforms and liberated by removing from the quotidian context. Rather than an inert object engulfed by the perceiving consciousness, the liberated thing becomes active and devours its observer. The language of permanent and fluid transformations accompanies a promiscuous, perpetual orgy of devouring. The concept of “liberation” is claimed as both “emancipation” and “release”. Disfunctional objects gain a new identity, being anthropomorfized or animated. Vasco da Gama propose a special type of sensibility reclined on an unruly imagination and encourages the reader to discover new relations between the object and the word.
