Download De sur a sur.: Relaciones entre la poesía chilena y la by Naín Nómez,Álvaro Salvador PDF

By Naín Nómez,Álvaro Salvador

Este trabajo, sobre los poetas de los angeles segunda mitad del siglo XX en Chile y España, es una aproximación a un tema mayor que incluye las relaciones de los mismos con los angeles vanguardia en términos de ruptura o continuidad, tradición o antitradición, poesía well known, poesía social o poesía de élites. Del mismo modo, revela su carácter neovanguardista, así como sus relaciones con el proceso de los angeles modernidad, a los angeles que estos poetas ven fundamentalmente como una instalación depredadora del capitalismo y de l. a. racionalidad burguesa. De más está decir que aquí dejamos de lado el problema del valor y de los angeles calidad poética de unos y otros. A nuestro juicio, estos poetas presentan una marca estética específi ca difícil de equiparar, pero nos interesan más las posiciones críticas que los poetas del momento presentan frente a l. a. tradición anterior y que se cumple de forma parecida en ambos países.
