Hamze, D. G. The Potential of Colloquial Speech in the Grotesquely Dominated Literary Expression (Based on Statements of Witold Gombrowicz)

  • This survey aims to justify in a number of aspects, the role of colloquial speech within the frame of the grotesque expression in the literary text, to examine the aesthetic and stylistic integration ( fusion) within the scope of the grotesque and the mutual induction between grotesque and colloquialism, as well as to identify the colloquial speech in the literary work as the trigger of fruitful communication between Author and Reader. The main results from the carried survey concern mainly the language perceived as a cognitive and pragmatic and aesthetic and dynamic phenomenon in its many incarnations, namely the conversational capacity of the artistic word (in this instance that of the Polish writer Witold Gombrovicz) to revive, fructify and de-formalize language; the performance-driven colloquial style in the grotesque image as an «amplifier» of the communicative density of the dialogue Author-Reader; the community nature of the colloquial exchange as the creator and the catalyst of the grotesque discourse; the text-forming role of the grotesque imagery with a conversational tint as the eliminator of the risk of redundancy in the text; the conversational affinity of the grotesque, which sets out its heterogeneity, corresponding to the „multi stylistic” essence of the conversational tongue, which like the grotesque itself, discards hierarchies, levels the forms of existence; the colloquialism of the grotesque panorama, which proves its universal character, thus being a Supranational, a supra ethical category and confirms the fact that the „speech” enriches the written language.
