ATTILA JOZSEF: REJTELMEK [ENIGMAS]
Languages of publication
The analysis shows how various key motifs of Attila Jozsef's love poetry are represented in this poem of 1937, including transparency, the contrast between 'up' and 'down', 'the outside' and 'the inside' (or, 'eye' vs. 'heart': the external vs. the internal world) and, in general, macro-world and micro-world, as well as reference to music (here: singing, reverberation) and counterpoint. The paper discusses the form and regularity of parallel reference to first vs. second person (the poet and his love), intertextual references to fairy tales and folk poetry, the plane of associations and the parallel structures of the sentences, as well as the palatovelar orchestration and rhythm of the poem.
