The fourteen essays of this volume engage in distinct ways with the matter of motion in early modern Spanish poetics, without limiting the dialectic of stasis and movement to any single sphere or manifestation. Interrogation of the interdependence of tradition and innovation, poetry, power and politics, shifting signifiers, the intersection of topography and deviant temporalities, the movement between the secular and the sacred, tensions between centres and peripheries, issues of manuscript circulation and reception, poetic calls and echoes across continents and centuries, and between creative writing and reading subjects, all demonstrate that Helgerson's central notion of conspicuous movement is relevant beyond early sixteenth-century secular poetics, By opening it up we approximate a better understanding of poetry's flexible spatio-temporal co-ordinates in a period of extraordinary historical circumstances and conterminous radical cultural transformation. Los catorce ensayos de este volumen conectan de una manera perceptible con el tema del movimiento en la poesia espanola del siglo de oro, sin limitar la dialectica de la estasis y movimiento a una sola esfera o manifestacion unica. Entre los multiples enfoques cabe destacar: el cuestionamiento de la interdependencia de la tradicion e inovacion, de la poesia, del poder y la politica, de los sigantes que se transforman, de los espacios que conectan y cruzan con los tiempos 'desviados'; analisis de las tensiones entre lo sagrado y lo secular, del conflicto centro-periferia y del complejo sistema de produccion, circulacion y recepcion de los manuscritos; el dialogo con el eco poetico a traves de los siglos y de los continentes y la construccion creativa del sujeto escritor y/o lector. Al abrir la nocion central de Helgerson del "movimiento cono" mas alla de la poesia nueva secular, este libro propone un entendimiento mas completo de las coordinadas espacio-temporales de la poesia en un periodo de circunstancias historicas extrao Jean Andrews is Associate Pssor in the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, University of Nottingham.
