Modern poetry – La poesía moderna


 
Q. You have said that in much contemporary poetry there is no music. What do you mean?
 
JK. The meaning is emphasized in much poetry today. It is often too intellectual, not enough is felt. Thinking, reasoning is emphasized too much.
 
Q. Do you feel today’s poetry is often over-expressed?
 
JK. Yes. Not enough is hidden, suggested, less obvious.
 
Q. Much poetry is born from the "one thousand voices of dissent".
 
JK. Yes, it has become political. It doesn’t point to the ultimate. It’s a lack of real imagination. It’s stuck on the social, realistic level.   (Cont. tomorrow)

P. Vd. ha dicho que mucha de la poesía contemporánea no tiene música. ¿Qué quiere decir con esto?
 
JK. se enfatiza mucho la significación en la poesía actual. A menudo es demasiado intelectual, no hay en ella mucho que es sentido ("felt"). El pensamiento, la razón se enfatizan demasiado..
 
P. ¿Cree (¿siente?="feel") que la poesía de hoy está sobreexpresada?
 
JK. Sí. No hay suficiente de lo que está oculto, sugerido, menos obvio.
 
P. Mucha poesía arranca de "las mil voces de disensión".
 
JK. Sí, se ha politizado. No apunta a lo último. Es una falta de imaginación real. Está apegada a la esfera social, realista.   (continuará mañana)
