the reader . der vorleser


A portugiese man reads in german for the first time in his life a poem from the portuguese author Fernando Pessoa. One notices clearly that he doesn't have any knowledge of the german language, showing instead the natural unsafeness of a learning process. In this sense, and also because he is reading a portuguese author in a totaly strange language, the process of reading turns here into a metaphor of the poetic content of the work he is reading.
