BLIKSTEIN, Izidoro. The poetics of time/space in “The table”. Ide (São Paulo) [online]. 2011, vol.34, n.53, pp. 161-180. ISSN 0101-3106.

The poem “The table”, on a first reading, would consist in the speech of a son addressed to his father: introducing the hypothesis of a party to honor his father, the son begins to describe what this “great dinner” might be. But it is evident that the Poet goes far beyond a mere description. Indeed, by bringing together the whole family - the dead and alive ones - the temporal and spatial dimensions end up merging: past and present are condensed in a single space and object, the table. It is worth asking, after all: 1. How is this poetics of the ubiquitous and iconic? 2. Through what mechanism and linguistic tools does the Poet build this meeting between the living and dead ones around the table, at a single time and space? 3. Why gathering the whole family and what does the Poet seek in this path around the table? Our purpose, in this paper, is to answer these questions.
