Meaning of jitanjáfora

Danilo Enrique Noreña Benítez


Words or expressions invented for poetic purposes.



Poetic form with meaningless text; it can also be a prose, whose values are in its harmony, in the aesthetic combination of its words and its cadence. The name was taken by the Mexican Alfonso Reyes from a poetry devoid of meaning that Mariano Brull taught to recite his daughters (1929).
