"Vivid," wrote Borges, "is the contrast in styles" between Cervantes' Don Quixote and Menard's (which are of course identical in their letter). I think I have found a contemporary example of this contrast in styles between identical expressions written at different times.
In 1946, Henry Miller published a pamphlet called Patchen, Man of Anger and Light. In 2006, I might write pamphlet called Tost, Man of Anger and Light. Here, too, the stylistic differences are vivid.
A less perfect example can be constructed by asking whether Kenneth Patchen or Ben Lerner wrote "Perhaps It Is Time":
Does anyone think it's easy
To be a creature in this world?
To ask for reasons
When all reasons serve only
To make the darkness darker,
And to break the heart?
-- Not only of a man,
But of all breathing things?
Perhaps, friends, it is time
To take a stand
Against all this senseless hurt.
Angle of Yaw arrived the other day. These are good days for my grammar. Vivid.
