    This article analyses one of the most daring experiments of the neobarroco, Néstor Perlongher’s writing based on his experiences with psychotropic drugs and esoteric religions in Brazil. It explores the poetics of the writer and anthropologist’s later collection, Aguas aéreas (1990), based on his experiences with the Brazilian religion Santo Daime and his experiments with the drug yagé or ayahuasca. With references to Deleuze and Žižek, the author examines Perlongher’s radical poetics, in particular his creation of visual elements that function as referents without symbolization.
