POSTMODERNISMUL, O POETICĂ GLOBALIZATĂ (EXEMPLUL ROMÂNESC)
POSTMODERNISM, A GLOBALIZED POETICS (THE ROMANIAN EXAMPLE)
Universitatea din Craiova, Str. Al. I. Cuza, Nr. 13
My contribution studies, from a theoretical and comparative perspective, the phenomenon of a globalized (that is, internationalized) postmodernism by focusing on the Romanian case, mainly in poetry. A special attention is given to the relationship between postmodernism as a movement or a style and postmodernity or the “postmodern condition”(Lyotard). During the eighties, Romania has known a “postmodernism without postmodernity” (Mircea Martin). A means of globalizing postmodernism has been the impact of American popular culture, which has conquered the Romanian public sphere after the fall of communism. Romanian poetic postmodernism in its three “waves” manifested so far (the eighties, the nineties and the Millenium) is claiming for itself new territories of the “standard” Western postmodernism, from intertextuality to intermediality. I argue that comparative poetics is a very appropriate framework of analysis for this topic and it should be corroborated with the semiotic, pragmatic and cognitive approach in order to determine the invariants as well as the variables (the local specificities) of various postmodernisms.
