Spanish term or phrase: que les traspasa el excedente barroco de un valor suntuario
Chilean academic talking about barroque letters written by D. Eltit for book on romantic couplings of insane people in asylum

La escritura de D. Eltit retoca las fisuras de sentido que trizan los locos por dentro con el preciosismo de un culto libresco a la palabra tallada de la tradición medieval y romántica, que les traspasa el excedente barroco de un valor suntuario como deslumbrante compensación a su pobreza de vida.

que les traspasa el excedente barroco de un valor suntuario


Explanation:
Hmmm... This text about barroque issues is barroque itself and meaning slightly obscure. This translation is not a literal one, but pretty close. The sense is intact:

"...which passes on to them the barroque sequels of a luxurious value"
