Una previsione sbagliata: gli ultimi poeti dopo il diluvio
- Author(s): Policastro, Gilda
- et al.
The article aims to investigate the contemporary poetic scene, in particular the heritage of Neoavanguardia in the so-called research area. Denying the prophecy of “diluvio” that Gruppo 63 formulated in the forty years of birth, new poetic tendencies and contests were born, following French and American poets and theorists. The main place of meeting and exchanges for the new textuality is internet, which is at the same time a tool for the evolution of languages and poetical practices. Instead of ending after “diluvio”, a stream of poets born between the sixties and the nineties enriched the poetic scene with new possibilities, re-discussing the same form and conception of traditional poetry.
