Abstract

This work focuses in love poems by Francisco Brines and Jose Agustín Goytisolo, published (written or rewritten) from 1986. Both voices glean a poetical ethos (Ballart 2005) which desiring performances pass between the celebration of the enjoyment and the elegy, movements that invite the reader to a confidence agreement where the persuasion of the "speaker" is effective in the measure in which it agrees with the "common" experience or the habitual expectations of reading and turns them aside, to enrich them in perspectives: in one and another case, these writings are designed as a polemic studding that fights to contravene the practices and still dominant representations of the love inside the Spanish imaginary of the Transition and later.
