Connotations of Significance and their Visualization in Slovak Poems by Imrich Fuhl
The paper points out the existence of the Slovak poetic word in presentday Hungary. It aims to identify the themes, creative procedures, methods and means of expression used in the Slovak poems by Imrich Fuhl. Based on a methodological basis, it follows the specific attributes of the complex being of the individual in this chronotope. It puts a special emphasis on those poems that are supported by visualization in one way or another in his two published poetry collections. It characterizes the connection between Fuhl‘s poetry and selected visual concretizations of his texts. In addition, individual prototexts follow not only the intricate fates of a multicultural lyrical subject, but also its natural, universal, specific objectifications. With the gradual interpretation of these forms, Fuhl‘s (at that time natural) youthful temperament is also at the forefront. In such a perception, the poetically depicted – even oxymoronic – world is altered, developed, perfected, but also criticized, dishonoured, reduced: until (in a certain existential and cultural sense of the word) it degenerates. Calligrams, icons, parodies, and visual “materializations” are also mentioned as multidimensional poetic objects of these processes. The contribution also uses specific excerpts from the originals, respectively metatexts of experts in the field, which actually illustrate the way of thinking. The result and contribution of the text is the presentation of generally valid but also specific features of the author and his extraordinary literary work in given geographical and cultural coordinates.
