Sobre la disolución de un paradigma o la diáspora estética de la poesía de la experiencia
This article aims to chronicle the lyrical trend of realistic affiliation labelled “poetry of experience” that dominated the Spanish literary system of the Eighties, establishing a differentiated norm which integrated the paradigm of new creation. From the perspective granted by a certain historical distance, the examination of that process shows its progressive disintegration during the Nineties, due to the institutionalisation of the paradigm, along with stagnation and epigonism, until the moment when younger poets discuss it and look for a change. At that moment, the poetry of experience stresses the meditative overtones and amplifies the space of realism towards a wider imaginative freedom, whilst transforming its characteristic features, such as narrativity and biographical anecdotes.
