"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.”
The image came to me of the pragmatic dimension of poetic language as a sort of hazy field of connotation. That is, since the poem is not usually functioning pragmatically, all those pragmatic markers are let loose to be free radicals. I'm going to have to go back to Grice and explain what I mean more precisely.
