The critic Silvio Ramat offers an attractive hypothesis: playing with the word "chimera" (as defined by Bonaffini, a "hauntingly complex apparition, a fleeting sign of metaphysical opening, present throughout Campana's work and prefiguring the poetic mission itself"), (44) he anagrammatizes it as "America."
