The Dynamics of Time and Space in Symbolist and Post-Symbolist Poetry

Study will develop different approaches to the language of time and space as an expression of the dynamics of consciousness. An general distinction will be made among poets whose aim it is to create a mental time and space with its inner dialectic which manifested in the transcendence of human time and space, and those who communicate the will of the poet as homo-faber, he who works to endow language with the power to transform the exterior world and human experience and history. Poets studied will be Mallarme, Supervielle, Char, Saint-John Perse and Michaux.
