It is also a dialogue between the poet and the reader/listener. (NOVAES, 2000, p.237). We look for to understand infancy and the children in the society contemporary, in order to understand the delicate complexity and the creative dimension of the infantile actions. We find interesting contributions in the workmanship of the German philosopher Walter Benjamin (2002). To know infancy and the children favors the man to be subject critic of the history that it produces. For the author, ' ' the child joins the personages in much more close way of what the adult.

Uncurling and the changed words reach it with infvel force, and when it arises yourself he is envolta for the snowstorm that blew of leitura' '. Still according to author, ' ' he is possible to make of the child a natural being, it makes a critical a maken a mistake conception that the adults kept of the child, considering it incomplete incapaz' '. (BENJAMIN, 2002, p.57). We believe that the child sees its universe projected being capable to treat the word as a toy, then it creates a universe of dream and reality, in much more natural way of what the adult. Walter Benjamin underlines the difference between the infantile imagination and the concept that the adult makes of the playful universe of the child.

As we can observe in Benjamin the imagination of the child by itself already is fantasiosa. Flag when writing ' ' Little pig of India, ' ' it thinks the fancy about the child. The poetry due its formal structure, can be instrument of fast communication with infancy. Benjamin makes one criticizes the infantilizao of the child as: We do not have to translate the world for the children, and to soon deliver everything to it, because, according to it, the children, are capable of alone relaborarem and elaborating meanings for what she is in its return.
