On „Octavian Goga or Nostalgia of Completion by «US»”, in other terms
Octavian Goga is one of the most representative Romanian poets. One of his impressive features resides in the ability to combine words from a literary register with words from a regional, a popular or an archaic one. Dictionary of Octavian Goga’s Poetic Language was written by Gheorge Moldoveanu, a Romanian eminent professor. It comes under a quite deficient range of dictionaries of Romanian writers’ language. The endeavour has a clear artistic and sociological purpose. The repertory of words used by a poet, located in contexts of different lengths, actually means a different reading of his creation. The regent is the sociocultural analysis. Nevertheless, the artistic emotion of the reader is not excluded, as the semi-bareness of a phrase in a poem has the capacity to move the reader toward the author’s intimate thinking and the way he expressed his own thoughts and feelings. By recalling the proceeding of the Biblical accordance, this type of dictionaries represents the easiest way of entering the intimacy of a certain author’s poetic laboratory. Gheorge Moldoveanu divided his monumental Dictionary (853 pages) into two parts: the first part is an alphabetical repertory of all words, in contexts of various lengths; the second part is an amazingly thorough table that contains the decreasing frequency of these words. The entire structure implies the sense of a fundamental work that is built with reliability and talent. Thus, Octavian Goga’s poetic work, a Romanian writer, reveals itself in the innermost �joints� of its genesis.
Keywords: dictionary, poetic language, quantitative analysis, frequency.
