BAROQUE SHAPES OF WORDS. STYLE EVOLUTION PROBLEMS OF KASPER TWARDOWSKI'S POEMS
Languages of publication
The article is dedicated to the reflection over the style of three poems of Kasper Twardowski, the early baroque writer. The poems are: 'Lekcyje Kupidynowe' (1617), 'Lódz mlodzi z nawalnosci do brzegu plynaca' (1618) and 'Pochodnia Milosci Bozej z piacia strzal ognistych' (1628). Foundations of pragmatic stylistics, which takes into consideration the subjective aspect of work, have been taken on. Poems lexis, figures of rhetoric and stylistic features have been observed. The style evolution of analyzed texts is based on gradual convertion of text form, focused on the following notions: SENSUAL LOVE - SIN//PENANCE - GOD'S LOVE. These notions have their equivalents on the style level, i.e.: IDYLL // COURTLINESS - EXPLICITNESS // IMAGERY - EXPLICITNESS // RESTRAINT. The analysis of work's style level was aimed to point a parallel between stylistics sphere of literary text and its ideological surface motivated subjectively, which is a reflex of author's - who is the text subject - view posture. Made observations are the next proof of extraordinary cultural and linqual luxuriance of baroque period, which are in favour of omnipresent 'varietas' idea and its not trivial influence on stylistic shape of a text.
