.... A term used to designate a brief but significant 20th-c. Sp. poetic trend stemming from a revival of the 17th-c. baroque poet Luis de Góngora ( 1561–1627 ) on the tricentennial of his death. Góngora’s style, characterized by brilliant if extravagant metaphors and convoluted or Latinate syntax, created a new interest in the formal possibilities of lang. that led to the publication of mod. eds. of his work and important stylistic studies of his poetry. Among contributors to this vogue were Dámaso Alonso , Gerardo Diego , and José Maria de...

...of literary works, the word pastiche dates back centuries; as an evaluative term, its usage gradually acquired a hint of negative or dismissive connotation. The word implies a lack of originality or coherence, an imitative jumble. It was only in the latter half of the 20th c.—and most esp. in the context of theories of postmod. narrative—that pastiche acquired its current critical purchase. While the term is almost unthinkable today outside the umbrella of postmodernism , its etymological root is instructive. Pastiche comes from pasticcio ,...

...or because their service had been rewarded with a gift of property. Scholars differ over the degree of literacy that may be ascribed to the minstrels; partisans of the oral-formulaic theory of epic composition argue that they composed by a technique similar to that of the 20th-c. unlettered Yugoslavian guslar (Lord, Duggan). The troubadour Guiraut Riquier distinguished four classes of Occitan joglars: the lowly buffoon; the court musician and singer or joglar in a strict sense; the composer of melody and words or troubadour ; and the teacher or...

Consider T. S. Eliot ’s oblique Nativity reference in “Gerontion” to a time “swaddled in darkness” or the insinuating Nativity theme in postcolonial poets such as Christopher Okigbo .

...poetic forms led to what was often termed new poetry , essentially on a Eur. model (ranging from romanticism to the avant-gardes of the early 20th c.; see avant-garde poetics ). In Japan, China, South Asia, and the Islamic world, these versions of new poetry entered a tense relationship with the existing older poetry. The later represented cultural trad., a conservatism that, through the course of the 20th c., increasingly represented nationalism.

In Fr. prosody of the early 20th c., the term accord was proposed by Jules Romains (pseud. of Louis Farigoule , 1885–1972 ) and Georges Chennevière ( 1884–1927 ), poets and theorists of the movement known as unanimism, for a variety of forms of consonance and near rhyme. The accords of Romains were attacked by Maurice Grammont but may have influenced the pararhyme of Wilfred Owen. In fact, near rhyme has played an important role in most of the major Western prosodies of the late 19th and early 20th cs.—not only Brit. ( G. M. Hopkins , ...

In the 20th c., the rise of comparative anthropology ( Franz Boas , J. G. Frazer ) and mod. psychology ( Sigmund Freud , C. G.
