The “generation of light” through translation is finally exemplified by de Campos’s own translation of a fragment by Cavalcanti in which he superimposes Pound’s translation onto a version of Dante. De Campos’s masterly solution, which he calls “hypertranslation” (“Cavalcanti via Pound via Dante”), is an operation involving several strata that allow the text’s meaning to shine through. “Transcreation,” “hypertranslation,” “translight,” “transluciferation”—these are some of the names that Haroldo de Campos coined throughout his career in an attempt to define the practice of writing.
