In search of a new artificial language, Góngora tries to retrieve by poetic means a similarity between words and things. Thus, in his sonnet «Prisión del nácar era articulado» (1620), in which artifice and violence are correlated, artificiality of the description itself corresponds to artificiality of the beauty that is described. Gongorine techniques have here a mimologic function, by which the text seems to make visible and audible a violence that has always been underlying the lyric praise of the mistress. Her «hyper-precious» image ows its outstanding beauty to masculine compelling action. This feature is reworked by other baroque poets such as Quevedo
