SILVA FILHO, Francisco Bento da  and  MELO, Symone Fernandes de. In the shadow of a dialogue: Heidegger and the poetry of Augusto dos Anjos. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.1, pp. 90-97. ISSN 1809-6867.

This article seeks to promote a meeting between Heidegger's philosophical thinking and the poetics of Augusto dos Anjos. Heidegger's thinking, at a time called turning, departs from the terminology of phenomenology and hermeneutics. The proposition of the philosopher, henceforth, begins to turn to language and to be called the topology of being. Therefore, the work of art, with special emphasis on poetry, is the source from which the unveiling and the revelation of world and earth, in the Heideggerian terms, spring forth. Based on this understanding, a study was made of Heidegger's contributions to existential phenomenology, with emphasis on the second moment of his production or path. From then on, it appeared necessary to tangentiate the singularity of Augustus of the Angels, expressed in his history and his poetics, in dialogue with Heidegger's philosophical thought. Augustus of the Angels rescues the world in its pure state and language as a possibility of meaning. In a convergent direction, Heidegger walks toward the unveiling of the Being, which occurs in the face of the anguish of existence and the extreme possibility of non-being, in the face of its being-to-death condition. The dialogue between the philosopher and the poet was thought provoking and fruitful.

Keywords : Phenomenology; Existentialism; Language; Heidegger; Augusto dos Anjos.
