Description Between Cervantes and Borges – important narrators but also poets – two profound renewals of Spanish poetic language took place: one by Luis de Góngora and the other by Ruben Darío. The first one occurred in the Iberian Peninsula and the other in America. Both represent, along with Garcilaso’s revolution in the Renaissance, the most significant transformations of the Spanish poetic language. Our intention is to show, discussing one poem by Góngora and one by Darío, the essential contribution of these authors to the evolution of poetic expression in the Castilian language, as well as to emphasize the need to consider Hispanic poetry written on both sides of the Atlantic as a vast unity of meaning. We conclude that the poetic work of both poets has decidedly marked poetic sensibilities in Spanish and has had a great influence on in the Spanish speaking world on both sides of the Atlantic. One can also understand better in the light of these poets’ contributions the qualities of Spanish poetic language in the post-Borges era.
Igual que toda cosa viva, el lenguaje poético ha experimentado, desde sus principios hasta el día de hoy, numerosas transformaciones. Podríamos decir que es posible reconocer en su movimiento un oleaje entre los períodos de evolución, ampliando las posibilidades de un mismo código, y los momentos de revolución, al llevar el lenguaje poético existente más allá de sus límites, hasta que irrumpa un lenguaje nuevo, fresco. Éste, igual que el anterior, también se expande y asienta y luego se vuelve una convención con la que surge la necesidad de un nuevo lenguaje que rompa el status quo de la práctica artística existente. La creatividad, que es esencia y propulsora del arte, exige superar las convenciones y buscar siempre el frescor del lenguaje artístico o poético.
Med Cervantesom in Borgesom – pomembnima pisateljema, a tudi pesnikoma – sta se zgodili dve temeljiti prenovi pesniškega jezika v španščini: izvršili sta se skozi pesniško delo Luisa de Góngore in Rubena Daría. Prva se je zgodila na Iberskem polotoku, druga v Ameriki. Obe predstavljata, skupaj z Garcilasovo revolucijo v renesansi, vrhova preobrazbe pesniškega jezika v španščini. Na primeru izbranih pesmi Luisa de Góngore in Rubena Daría skušamo v prispevku pokazati, kako sta pesnika bistveno doprinesla k razvoju pesniškega izraza v kastiljščini, pa tudi poudariti, da je liriko, pisano v španskem jeziku na eni in drugi strani Atlantika, treba dojemati kot razsežno pomensko enoto. Na podlagi analize prihajamo do zaključka, da je pesniško delo obeh avtorjev močno zaznamovalo španski pesniški posluh in imelo velik vpliv na oba bregova jezika. Od tu dalje je mogoče bolje razumeti, kakšne so značilnosti španskega pesniškega posluha v sodobnem času, ki mineva že po Borgesu.
