Published in 1928 to great acclaim when its author was just twenty years old The Cardboard House is sweeping and passionate The novel presents a series of flashes scenes moods dreams and weather as the narrator wanders through Barranco then an exclusive seaside res. It must have something to do with the presence of the paragraph That which makes it obvious that one isn t reading poetry The paragraph distinguished from those lines of eneven lengths which may or may not rhyme The presence of paragraphs that tell me just maybe I ll be able to understand what I m preparing to read Wonderful wonderful paragraphsBut there are those damned prose poems Those deceptive paragraphs which may or may not yield up meaning or understanding or anything that a reader who s almost exclusively drawn to prose might expect hope for The familiar made alien by inclusion in the prose poem And sometimes sometimes the familiar made alien is exactly what one wanted without knowing it Exactly what was needed at a particular time ExactlyperfectIn Mart n Ad n s The Cardboard House readers are treated to the sensations memories reflections of a narrator whose family vacationed in the Barranco section of Lima once a seaside resort recently like the fortunes of the narrator s family fallen into disrepair It s the story of first loves friends friendly rivalry tourists loss and so so much Minus of course the story which is only suggested hinted at revealed in its absence A story the way a poet might tell itThis afternoon the world is a potato in a sack The sack is a small white dusty sky like the small sacks used for carrying flour The world is little dark gritty as if just harvested in some unknown agricultural infinity I have gone to the countryside to see the clouds and the alfalfa fields But I have gone almost at night and I will no longer be able to smell the smells of the afternoon tactile that are smelled through the skin Out of its dusty whiteness the sky affiliated with the vanguard creates round multicolored clouds that at times look like German balls and at others really like the clouds of Norah Borges Now I have to smell colors And the road I take turns into a crossroads And the four pathways born to the road screech like newborn babes they want to be rocked and the wind turns into a swinging young dandy after nightfall and does not want to rock roads the air puts on oxford trousers and there is no way to convince it that it is not a man I walk away from the sky And as I leave the country side surrounded by urbanizations I notice the countryside is in the sky a flock of fat fleecy clouds award winners at the Exposition romp about in the green sky And this I see from far away so far away that I get into bed to sweat colors Norah Borges clouds Not for everyone perhaps but certainly one for the poets out there or the poetry inclined or the poetry tolerant those like myself who can occasionally muddle through any type of writing as long it s beautiful and this is Five stars enthusiastically given just for you maybe if you re of a mind to
