Starting from an analysis of Lorenzo Calogero's life and literary works, the article focuses on the relationship between cultural anthropology and poetry. According to some postmodern, anthropological theories the poetic writing could help to clarify some aspects of ethnography that the traditional anthropological writing sometimes fails to focus on. The attempt of this article is to consider Calogero’s poetry as an ethnographic field that describes and transforms both the real world and the inner world of the poet. The dimension of "uninterrupted" writing and the cyclicality of Calogero's poetry, allows us to explore a ritual dimension of his poetry as a device capable of giving order and protecting his life/ existence.
