Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Book Information


Title: L'énonciation dans la poésie moderne
Subtitle: Approche linguistique des genres poétiques
Written By: Adam Aegidius
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?21815
Series Title: ThéoCrit' - Volume 4

La définition de la poésie hante les poètes comme les chercheurs depuis longtemps. Mais peut-on la définir ? La poésie a-t-elle une essence ? Contient-elle des éléments qui lui sont propres ? Ou faut-il la considérer dans une perspective plus large ? Ce livre examine la poésie moderne sous la perspective des genres et de l'énonciation. La question des genres s'impose d'autant plus que certaines oeuvres poétiques modernes habituellement décrites comme « inclassables » peuvent en fait être intégrées à des genres nouveaux. Parmi ceux-ci, les genres de l'épopée lyrique, de l'autofiction poétique et de la chronique poétique seront ici étudiés méthodiquement, ce qui permettra ainsi d'explorer les limites des genres poétiques modernes. Fortement liée à cette problématique des genres, la question de l'énonciation conduit à se demander qui parle dans les textes. Celui qui parle dans la poésie, est-ce seulement, comme on l'a souvent affirmé, le « je » lyrique ? Et comment définir cette instance selon des principes linguistiques et énonciatifs ? Contenu : Poésie moderne - Genres littéraires - Théorie des genres - Énonciation - Polyphonie linguistique - Linguistique textuelle.
