seguir

Hola a todos:

¿Me pueden decir si los tiempos fluyen bien en esta oracion, por favor?

(Durante toda la obra teatral) seguían usando una lengua muy poetica, y eso me gusto.

Durante toda la obra teatral siguieron usando una lengua muy poetica, y eso me gusto.

Yo creo que, en este caso, se puede usar tanto "seguian" como "siguieron." Pero si escojo "seguían" se ve como el contexto en lugar de otra importante parte, o sea, otra accion. ¿Me equivoco?

Muchas gracias

La expresión "seguir haciendo algo" probablemente es una traducción del inglés "to keep doing something", y no suena muy natural en este caso. Yo diría:

Durante toda la obra de teatro, usaron una lengua muy poética, y eso me gustó.


Y sí, usaría el pretérito en este caso, no el imperfecto.
