"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.”
I have a theory about this feeling. When someone writes words that are so mushy that they couldn't possibly hurt you, you imagine he's a got a stick and a bag of stones somewhere to back him up. Why else would he expect (and sometimes demand) that you take his melodrama seriously? A few personal experiences here and there have partially confirmed this theory. Beware the scholar who refuses to speak his mind clearly but expects to be understood immediately. He is obviously asking you to respect his power, not his knowledge. Thus the feeling that you're getting bullied.
