Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In many works of the twentieth century it happens that the opposites touch, that what for whole millennia had been rigorously separated suddenly become confused. No theory of literature based on the principle of the division of genres and styles has enjoyed good citizenship among the writers of the last century, attracted, on the contrary, by all the possible "liaisons dangereuses". The twentieth century is the century of oxymoronic structures. The essay examines three in particular: bitter rice, the true far-fetched and the daily tragic.
