This paper attempts a reappraisal of the last poems of this Argentine poet, anthropologist, and human-rights activist (1949â92). Many previous critics have either dismissed his mystical poems or explained them in esoteric terms. However, in this paper Perlongher's last poems are related, through the application of recent critical assessments of sexuality after AIDS, to earlier masochist aesthetics in his writing, and to socio-political changes that occurred in Argentina and Brazil following the spread of AIDS in the late 1980s.
