Abstract: The desegregation of the relationship between subject and reality and the consequent loss of trust in the possibility of transmitting meaning are considered typical characteristics of the latter part of the 20th century. These aspects of the period influenced all the arts, and in poetry changed the concepts of structure and language. The presence of personae and voices different from the subject in the poetic space determines the use of oral modes which are expressed in different ways. Our study examines three of these modes: the expressionistic manipulation of the common language by Edoardo Sanguineti; the desegregation of the text as a unit by Jolanda Insana; the prevalence of dialogue and communication in the work of Fabio Pusterla. In spite of the great differences between them, we can recognize a general tendency. In fact, the discourse of these poets is articulated by fragmentation and variation in order to express the typical modulations of verbal communication. Although the «voice» is the base of the compositions, and quite often the choices of syntax and language come from the spoken language, the discourse aims at a mimesis of it. Actually the poetic language always seems to avoid the common constructions and the zero-degree of standard speech. The language of the poems, even under the pressure of the voice, defends its linguistic exceptionality. However, in this period, it is not a sign of exclusivity and isolation as in the past, but the result of an effort on the part of the poets to participate in and share common experience and language.
