Abstract

The article proposes to analyze the points of contact between Carlos Drummond de Andrade’s book Sentimento do mundo, published in 1940, and the Spanish Civil War poetry, which arose in the period immediately prior. Our hypothesis is that the communist ideology and literature that spread from the Revolution of 1917 in the Soviet Union, and particularly during the Spanish Civil War, influenced the production of the Brazilian poet, and were decisive in the formulation of his work from that moment until the end of World War II.
