DE FIT A FIT: JOAN BROSSA- TATJANA GROMACA (Joel Juvany)
DE FIT A FIT. LLIBRE D’ARTISTA BROSSA-GROMACA
Tatjana Gromaca and Joan Brossa are two poets with apparently distant lives,
but however, they converge in different aspects.
The first connection between them is obvious: they both have found in poetry a
means in which they can support their feelings and opinions, always critical and
sceptical with their surroundings. But their relations go further, and if we
completely immerse ourselves in the lives of both artists, we will perceive a
trigger fact: war.
Gromaca and Brossa belong to two different worlds, two generations and
societies, separated geographically and temporarily, but they all found
themselves involved in the hostility of war, the Yugoslav and the Spanish civil
war respectively, during their growth.
The atmosphere of tautness, of social and nationalist movements, increases,
censorship and exodus that accompanied the artistic developments of both
poets have remained with them along their lives and have left a noticeable trail
in their work. The verses of their poems are incessant callings to antimilitarism
and critiques to this immobile society, always waiting for a transformation in the
Gromaca and Brossa are a clear example of two poets with explicit links such
as the social and war topics of their work and their commitment with the battle
against the injustices of their times, even with the obvious amount of time that
separates them. In the end, they are an example of the refuse to the difficulty
for humans to continue our evolution, and historical evidence that helps to prove
the proverb “man is the only animal that trips twice over the same rock”.
