Mojsova-Chepishevska V. On the cultural memory (through a simple and strict Macedonian song) [За културната меморија (преку простата и строга македонска песна)]
The short phrase simple and compact Macedonian poetry taken from Blaze Koneski’s renowned poem Vezilka has become a ‘symbol’ in itself of contemporary Macedonian poetry and Macedonian culture as a whole. The first part alludes to the simplicity of poetic expression (according to Juri Lothman, a consequence of acquired complexity, not because it is preceded by it, but rather because it occurs in its fon). The second part of the phrase suggests the poet’s rational control and self-awareness in the creative process. Both options – the simple (basic) and the celestial (heavenly / compact) seen as two extremes / oppositions intertwine and create the characteristic, unique Macedonian poetry. This text will attempt to answer the following questions: Should we not recognize in the simple and compact Macedonian poem, as well as in the Portuguese fado, the avant-garde poetry of point zero which shapes the world and culture with the faith in the real world – in the original?
simple and compact Macedonian poetry, original, cultural memory
