"The very existence of poetry should make us laugh. What is it all about? What is it for?"
“El subtítulo ‘Modelo para armar’ podría llevar a creer que las
diferentes partes del relato, separadas por blancos, se proponen como piezas permutables.”
Teaching versification is always a bear. It is the part of poetry that is the most alive, yet also lends itself to dry technical presentation. Counting syllables on the fingers, as the students do. I'm bringing in Bud Powell to try to make a point about rhythm.
