The Eastern European Perspective on Modern Poetry: Two Hypotheses

Eliza DEAC


The article analyses and compares two theoretical proposals – the notion of “transitive poetry” (Crăciun 2002) and the concept of “modern paradigm” (Muşina 2004) – which aim at uncovering uncharted areas of modern poetry and at bringing up to date the description of the way in which its trends, both continental and extra-continental, evolved during the second half of the 20th century.

Keywords: Romanian literary theory, modern poetry, transitive poetry, poetic paradigm, poetic self
