Sample text

Directing our attention to this phonic level of words, she calls attention to poetry. Page 30 Orozco repeats "Noches y días" in the fourth stanza but this time the observer is not open to receive some external sign but is closed, looking inward: Noches y días fortificada en la clausura de esta piel, escarbando en la sangre como un topo, removiendo en los huesos las fundaciones y las lápidas, en busca de un indicio como un talismán que me revierta la división y la caída. ¿Dónde fue sepultada la semilla de mi pequeño verbo Aún sin formular?

There is a constant tension between a fragment and its absorption into the whole, between individuation and the poet's identity as one­among­others, her social role.  Olga Orozco invites an intertextual approach to her work.  Her poem is at once subversive of and subject to the limits of discourse, a situation that makes us read her "negative" conclusion in a different light.  Orozco also uses a free verse form and her poetry maintains a quality of ceremonial orality, making it a kind of ritualization of speech.

The speaker makes a kind of sisterly transfer of a feminine item to poetry, raising the possibility of her identification with the position of poetry.  This paradox between presence and absence is the subject of her poem.  It is present as well in the rhythm Orozco creates through her strategic placement of palabras agudas, which add pauses to the already present punctuation in her long lines.  The yo poético moves in and out of her role as speaking subject; not a part of Nature, she is its scrutinizer.
