A definition of the style of culteranismo must base itself on the fact that the poet is concerned neither with the narrative content of his poem nor with holding the interest of the casual reader. He does not aspire to communicate events or emotions, and both story and listener, although necessary elements, must subordinate themselves to the poetic attempt to create an absolute formal beauty from words and their images.
Quevedo. Poderoso caballero… Analysis.
Among them the following may be listed: the use of a highly Latinate vocabulary for tonal effect; the rearrangement of customary Spanish word sequence in order to isolate the word from its continuity and so stress its value as an entity; the continual use of antithesis; and finally, the frequent use of mythological reference in such a way as to evoke with a single word long vistas of pictorial connotation. Although these techniques were at times exaggerated, there is scarcely a stanza of the Soledades which does not yield a witty poetic assertion on the order of the often quoted "a batallas de amor campo de pluma" "for battles of love, a field of feathers".
The range of this influence is further indicated by E. Wilson's translation of the Soledades the first since Thomas Stanley's in and by the intensity of critical interest both in the man and in his art.
His Baroque, convoluted style, known as Gongorism gongorismo , was so exaggerated by less gifted imitators that his reputation suffered after his death until it underwent a revaluation in the 20th century. Back to Profile. Photos Works. Main Photo. School period Add photo.
