Summary

Para los lectores actuales, ‘Poesía en movimiento’ remite sin duda a la antología de signo vanguardista preparada en 1966 por Octavio Paz y José Emilio Pacheco en la que estos pretendían recoger los poemas de quienes hubieran contribuido a la transformación de la poesía mejicana desde el Modernismo. El asunto no es baladí, si tenemos en cuenta lo que el Barroco simbolizó, desde su invención, para los modernos, sobre todo a partir de los Conceptos Fundamentales de la Historia del Arte (1915) de Heinrich Wölfflin, que lo caracterizó precisamente como búsqueda del movimiento. El siglo XX asignó además con esa palabra toda actitud de cambio artístico, cualquiera que fuese su naturaleza, cosa que sabía ya Cervantes cuando afirmó que ‘los tiempos mudan las cosas y perfeccionan las artes’.

Por otro lado, cabría recordar cómo, para Antonio Machado, ‘la poesía es palabra esencial en el tiempo’, razón por la que Juan de Mairena se autodenominaba ‘poeta del tiempo’, aunque se considerara a sí mismo alejado de la estética barroca representada por el soneto de Calderón ‘Estas que fueron pompa y alegría’. La temporalidad de la palabra y sus valores cinéticos vienen de lejos y forman parte esencial de la misma en el plano de la oralidad y en el de la escritura. Recordemos que el lenguaje, basado a un tiempo en la mutabilidad y en la inmutabilidad, se sirve de los recursos de transcripción, traducción, translación, transliteración, trasposición, mutación y otros muchos que la poesía utiliza con fines propios.
