O meu ponto de vista (não sou português!):

Eu não gosto da visão poética de Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen. Li alguns textos dos críticos e dos leitores: não vi nenhuma dúvida que esta poetisa é uma importante poetisa. Um choque cultural para mim - se ela fosse romena, a sua poesia teria sido recebida como um neoclássicismo atrasado... mas essa poesia anti-moderna parece ser percebida como um valor - penso que a sua afinidade com os valores conservadores (tais como a confiança no poder das palavras, ainda consideradas verdadeiras) e o louvor da monarquia e de catolicismo explicam esta situação.

Após as mudanças trazidas pelos tempos modernos, não posso escrever poesia como se fosse uma pintura mimética. Se eu quiser um contato com a natureza, simplesment saio! Ler poesia sobre a natureza em vez de senti-la é uma coisa ridícula, acho eu... Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, devo dizer, tentou fazer composições mais simples, sem palavras inúteis. Isso não é suficiente, porque a poetisa ainda tem uma concepção limitada do que a beleza/a poesia deve ser. Por isso, a natureza continua a ser uma... paisagem. O que é a poesia? "Musa ensina-me o canto/Venerável e antigo/O canto para todos/Por todos entendido"... Transparência total? Ainda está a ler apenas literatura... a cópia de uma cópia.

"Livro Sexto" tem alguns poemas em que o purismo formal é eficaz (por exemplo, "Manhã": "Como um fruto que mostra/Aberto pelo meio/A frescura do centro//Assim é a manhã/Dentro da qual eu entro") e os poemas políticos são realmente bons (Data, As Pessoas Sensíveis, O Super-Homem, Cantar), devido ao uso de retórica não mais do que é necessário. Mas, enfim, esperava mais do que "Transferir o quadro o muro a brisa/A flor o copo o brilho da madeira/E a fria e virgem liquidez da água/Para o mundo do poema limpo e rigoroso"...

My point of view (mind you, I'm not Portuguese!):
I don't like the poetic vision of Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen. I read a few texts by critics and readers and have noticed that nobody doubts her importance as a poet. A culture shock for me - if she was Romanian, her poetry would have been received as a late, backward neoclassicism... but this antimodern poetry seems to be considered valuable - I think that this is explained by its love for conservative values (such as the absolute trust in the power of words, which are still considered to be true) and the praise of monarchy and Catholicism.

After the changes brought by the modern times, I simply cannot write poetry anymore as if it would be a figurative, mimetic painting. If I long for a contact with nature, I simply walk out! Reading poetry about nature instead of feeling it is a ridiculous thing, I think... I must say: Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen tried to make simpler compositions, without useless words [like it often happens in old fixed forms]. But this is not enough, as the poet still holds a limited conception of what beauty/poetry should be. Therefore, nature remains a... landscape. What is poetry? "Muse, teach me the old and worshipful song, the song for everyone, understood by everyone"... Total transparency? Still, you are just reading literature... the copy of a copy.

"6th book" contains several poems in which the formal purism is effective (for instance, "Morning": "Like a fruit - open in the middle - which shows the coolnes of the centre//Such is the morning in which I enter.") and the political poems are indeed good (Times, The Sensitive People, The Superman, Song), thanks to the use of rhetorics no more than necessary. But, after all, I was expecting more than "Transfer the painting, the wall, the breeze, the flower, the glass, the shining of the wood and the cold and virgin liquidity of water to the world of the beautiful and rigorous poem"...
