"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.”
This makes me want to go find more brutal posts about Oliver. Liu is right on about the blatant class and Orientalist issues in this poem, but the average Oliver poem is quite bad enough without going this far. And I'd like to see why.
At one point there was an exchange about one of her poems on Kasey Mohammed's blog Lime Tree, but I can't find it any more.
Possibly this? (Search down for "Oliver".)(Captcha, speaking of Orientalism, is "chine".)
I guess that's a related discussion at about the same time, also involving Kasey.

I never read this poet before but now that I have discovered this embarrassingly bad poem, I will use it as an embodiment of the condescending pseudo-liberal attitude to us, eternal Third World victims, that I despise.
