THE SPACE OF A POEM: THE TRIPTYCHS DUM DALEKO AND IANUS TRI TVARI
Languages of publication
This article discusses the arrangement of space in Věra Linhartová's (b. 1938) verse. The poet places great emphasis on the visual aspects of her verse, which is also why the poems have been called architectural. The first part of the article focuses on the chief means of achieving this architecture: typeface (size and style), spacing, and punctuation marks. The second part of the article focuses on the thematized spacetime of the fictional world of Linhartová's verse. It analyzes and interprets selected motifs and images: the wall, home, nature, nothingness, and emptiness.
