Poesía y resistencia. Notas para pensar la poesía en la época de las plataformas sociales

Poetry and resistance. Notes to think poetry at the time of social platforms.

This essay inquires about poetry and its forms of resistance as discourse and as artistic/writing practice in today’s world. Poetry resists the preponderance of the
narrative genre, the insistence of formal or formalistic analyses and the speed that goes against the current of the detail that some critics hold is necessary for the reading of the poetic discourse. Another way of resistance is through the passages and journeys of poets from the publishing world to the multiple world of the internet and its virtual communities. This passage leads us to think that poetry settles on a threshold (which is actually a position it occupies since classical antiquity), and from that position it obtains its paradoxical nature, and difficult to define. From that boundary position, contemporary poets explore with their poetry the world of book and virtual platforms, as spaces between which they usually move.

Key words: poetry - resistance - social platforms - publishing industry
