By Pamela August Russell

Disregard Shakespeare. Don’t expect Donne. Shelley and Keats: banished! And there’s totally no poet laureate from the golden or the other age. So fawning PhDs in love with little-understood verses by means of long-dead writers should still cross in other places. this can be poetry for the remainder of us—bad poetry! Pamela Russell’s unexalted (but completely hysterical) poems mock, chide, accuse, tease, funny story, undermine, aspect, and snigger on the global round us—and at whatever that takes itself too heavily. Her non-canonical oeuvre contains: Tea for 2 (A Tragedy); Nietzsche And The Ice-Cream Truck; Capitalism Can Fall unlike I Fell For You; Inappropriately Touched by means of An Angel; Love is sort of a rest room Bowl; and lots of extra. Who knew undesirable poetry can be so sturdy!

Example text

Estas expresiones en hebreo e ídish aparecen en las cartas de Freud muy espaciadamente, tan sólo en su correspondencia con parientes y amigos. El otro detalle es la presentación de la frase francesa "a qui dites-vous ça" como un chiste judío. ¿Lo es en realidad? Ya volveremos sobre este punto. Por ahora seguiremos abordando otros problemas interesantes que se plantean aquí. Hablando con propiedad, los chistes judíos impresos están incompletos. En realidad hay que oírlos y verlos. Su transmisión no es sólo verbal.

El significado del término Shlemihl no es idéntico al del "tipo de mala suerte" (unlucky fellow) inglés o al de "Pechvogel" alemán, porque la palabra hebrea incluye una calificación de ineptitud o candidez. EL proverbio antedicho parece implicar que el Shlemihl tiene un propósito inconsciente al organizar su mala suerte. Un proverbio alemán afirma: "Jeder ist seines Gluckes Schmied'' ("Cada hombre es el forjador de su propia fortuna"). El Schlemihl es el arquetipo oculto de su desgracia. La frase irónica "Suerte judía" apunta a una generalización que escapa a los estrechos límites de un tipo de judío torpe.

La frase francesa correspondiente es: Le goy s'amuse). Todos los chistes judíos de esa época afirmaban que los judíos alemanes eran iguales a los gentiles ante la ley, "excepto, gracias a Dios, que no se les permite ser oficiales". Algunas décadas antes del periodo en que florecieron las humoradas judías de este tipo, Heinrich Heine escribía: "Así como en Madagascar sólo los nobles tenían el privilegio de llegar a carniceros, la aristocracia de Hannover tenía aún antes un privilegio análogo, puesto que sólo los nobles podían ocupar los cargos de oficiales".
