Robert Duncan: The Stylistics of the Self

Lucian Blaga University, Sibiu

The paper explores the volumes of poems entitled The Opening of the Field and Roots and Branches belonging to the American poet Robert Duncan, approached from a double perspective: one offered by André Scrima, central to which is the triad: “prohibited,” “neutral,” “impure,” and which foregrounds the neutral as a wild space where the materialistic issues are prohibited; the latter builds on Marian Victor Buciu’s concepts of the historical, mythological, mythical and sensual being. The thrust of my argument is that the above represent various stages Duncan’s poetic sensibility undergoes in order to accomplish the reconciliation between the interior and exterior worlds of a troubled modern history.
