Huidobro has decided not to follow Alomar too closely; he does not name his protagonist “Adam” and thus does not strengthen the presence of a Genesis subtext. Yet Huidobro makes a paramount, though subtle, biblical reference in the last paragraph: “Una nueva era comienza. Al abrir sus puertas de jaspe, hinco una rodilla en tierra y te saludo muy respetuosamente” (716). 18– 19: “The wall was made of jasper, and the city itself was made of pure gold, as clear as glass. The foundation stones of the 4 A Desire for Equilibrium city wall were adorned with all kinds of precious stones.
Adam is in turn the master of Poetry, since she is after all the “escrava” of the title, although she does not appear to serve him. , is an implied slave of Poetry’s beauty and truth; but he is also her liberator, the chosen one who arrives after generations of servitude. In the beginning, Adam’s plágio [plagiary] unlike Huidobro’s poet’s “nueva era,” does not arise from years of meditation in work and fear. Instead, it springs spontaneously from greed and cunning mimicry: “Invejoso e macaco o primeiro homem resolveu criar também” [Envious and apelike the ﬁrst man resolved to create too] (OI 201).
5 Furthermore, the connection between the poet/self as Adam and as Christ is a very ﬂuid one, appearing as much in Huidobro’s parable as in Mário’s in the context of the individual expression of artistic truth. In the end, the main idea is that the poet is an Other, separate from the godhead, who constitutes a part of the divine manifestation in the natural world but who seeks to create his own explicitly human, implicitly divine manifestation through art. In contrast to “Non serviam,” the biblical background of Mário’s “Parábola” is both obvious and necessary.
