|The image of the 'dance' or 'dancer' conveys various aspects
that link up with the literary purposes in Robert Duncan's works.
Among those we have to emphasize his tendency to associate the
movements of the body with those of the words, revealing clues
and suggestions in both of them. The assimilation is centered
largely on the fact that as in the dance the movements are always
changing and they are altered by the dinamism of the energy that
comes from its acts, also, it has to pursue this kind of kinetic on
the poetic level in order to find the renewal and vision of a poetry
that is in process. We can find the metaphor of the 'dance' in the
main anthologies of Robert Duncan and perhaps the definitive
poem is 'The Dance'
