In the Tractatus and the Philosophical Investigations, Wittgenstein explores the 'mystery' of language - and encourages the reader to undertake the same exploration - through a series of gnomic statements and questions which defy simple categorization (and the contemporary language of philosophy at Wittgenstein's Cambridge) and display instead what Perloff calls 'an imaginative deployment of exempla, apposite images, parataxes, and sudden leaps of faith'.
Eleven sections - running from the more cohesive contemplations of "Vue sur le lac," "Les pivoines," and "Eaux de la Sauve, eaux du Lez" to the more fragile compactions of "Notes nocturnes," the many parataxes of proses such as "Au col de Larche," the oddly serene ruffledness of the closing verse of "Apres beau-coup d'annees" - spell out, ever patiently, though often interrogatively, the delicate intricacies of Jaccottet's much-meditated poetics.
O olhar para a parataxe por justaposicao e direcionado por um tratamento adequado da contextualizacao dessas construcoes, enquanto complexos inscritos em ambientes discursivos, associados as tradicoes discursivas (TDs).
O termo parataxe inclui, a partir de uma abordagem funcionalista Halliday (1985), estruturas que a gramatica tradicional chama de justaposicao assindetica, ou seja, construcoes em que as oracoes tem o mesmo estatuto, sem qualquer elemento de ligacao e que podem codificar quaisquer relacoes de sentido, desde as mais concretas, como a adicao simetrica, ate as mais abstratas, como a concessividade.
Os trabalhos atuais que giram em torno desse tipo de construcao consideram as propriedades prosodicas, semanticas, alem das sintaticas da parataxe, e focalizam a descricao da relacao semantica que se desenvolve entre os constituintes do constructo (PEKAREK-DOEHLER et al., 2010, THUMM, 2000).
