Abstract
Like all artistic expressions during the Chilean military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, Antipoetry was forced to negotiate what could be said with what the poet wanted to say. The ne- cessary negotiation that Parra’s poetry needed to undergo gave rise to many experiments with language, including systematic ambiguity, and the contestation of the authority of the author. These experiments are read in this article as a mechanism to avoid censorship and denounce dogmatism, thus, as an strategy to avoid the suppression of poetry’s right to say everything.
