Lieux, images, événements dans l'écriture poétique: Jacint Verdaguer

Xavier Ravier


This contribution begins with a reflection on LAtlàntida. It so happens that this
work enables us to understand what, it has been proposed in recent years, should be
called the syntax of imagination, that is to say, the process by which the creator of a
poem reinforces the impact of his discourse by setting up in the background a sort of
supraverbal continuum. This unreal element can be the very basis of the isotopy of the
discourse: the author of the article called it the persistent murmur of a lost world.
For Canigó, the place occupied by the Occitan region was evoked Provence in
particular, but also Mare Nostrum while LAtlàntida gave readers the opportunity to
recall the pan-Iberian and Mediterranean projection of the poets purpose: the two works,
each in their own way, open the door to the universal.
