28 feb. 2006

When making my plan to write one article a month for all of 2006, I didn't count on the fact that February had only 28 days. Still, I have made substantial progress on March's article even though Feb's is not yet done. I also didn't factor in my sloth.

Maybe "orientalism" is not the best word. What would you call this particular cultural "problematic"?

It turns out that, for all my protests, I am a secret believer in the duende myself. I am both the cultural critic analyzing the phenomenon from "outside," and an example of the same phenomenon I am describing. I wouldn't have become a hispanist in the first place without the damned duende. That's the point.
