FÉLIX GRANDE’S CONVERSATIONAL POETRY: ROMANTIC AFFINITIES

Ángel Luis Luján Atienza

AngelLuis.Lujan@uclm.es


Abstract

This paper aims to study conversational features of the poetry of Félix Grande from two theoretical bases: Wordsworth’s poetics and the reflections of Roberto Fernández Retamar; and from the lyrical practice of S. T. Coleridge. In all these cases "conversational poetry" is seen as a wayout of a crisis of poetic language of the time. This characterization goes beyond the use of colloquial lexicon and syntax in the poem, it involves other levels as circumstances of enunciation (they are poems placed in everyday life), appeal to other speakers and the use of various graphics resources, which highlighted the tension between orality and writing and between the particular and the global meditation that is the basis of all these poems.
