Example text

She acknowledges the poet’s heartfelt abuse of language as well as the critic’s splenetic abuse of the poet. The polysyllabic portmanteau word she coins might refer to the work of all authoritarians, including writers whose books browbeat readers and critics whose reviews manhandle authors. The voice of the critic in this poem overtly ridicules fuzzy-­brained poets; but taken as a whole the text of the poem also satirizes criti­cal readers who relish a poem only when intent on taking it apart. The title suggests the potential destructiveness of the criti­cal enterprise, since in this case the critic’s evaluation seems to have precluded a possible poem that remains unwritten.

This double movement of appropriation and reappropriation is suggested in Wright’s account of his response to “Melanctha”: The style was so insistent and original and sang so quaintly that I took the book home. As I read it my ears were opened for the first time to the magic of the spoken word.  . All of my life I had been only half hearing, but Miss Stein’s struggling words made the speech of the people around me vivid. From that moment on, in my attempts at writing, I was able to tap at will the vast pool of living words that swirled around me.

Of course, my favorite fragment, and the key to understanding the relationship of Tender Buttons to “Melanctha” and my own relationship to Stein, is the small fragment titled “A PETTICOAT,” which reads, in its entirety: “A light white, a disgrace, an ink spot, a rosy charm” (471). Here Stein combines a feminine metaphor of writing with images associated with female sexuality and reproduction: ink leaving its stain on white sheets of paper is equated with blood, as the writer is conflated with the menstruating woman, deflowered virgin, or mother giving birth.
