Details

The musical sense in both poetry and music is fundamentally temporal. The question is not whether music is a language or whether language is music, but rather how the "musicality" of language signifies. The musical sense of poetry is not only heard but it is also felt. In order to deal with these problems the author, Drina Hocevar, from Venezuela, has elaborated a highly original model. She tries to understand the temporal movement as a generative process, deeply rooted in the ontology of our being.
