The adult narrator Carlos, in the act of remembering his "infatuation" with Mariana, undertakes a journey into his past, though he actually travels no further than the reaches of his mind. His courage in confronting an extremely uncomfortable episode at the age of nine and then reconstructing it as a forty-something adult affords us a glimpse of one of the few forms of "heroic" behavior left to the modern world: An Essay in Method , a strategy which stimulates the reader to construct a more totalizing view of the events narrated and the present from which they are recounted. The entire journey, in fact, constitutes an elaborate rite of passage, one which leads Carlos to a more profound understanding of not only his society, but his place within that society.

For Sloterdijk, psycho- analysis overemphasized eros in which the human constantly seeks to fulfill a lack. While Pacheco may not share the messianic belief in translation that Benjamin explores, this sense of the agency of the text itself is shared.

In fact, as Pacheco expresses above, the thymotic impulse is present for many literary translators, and translation expresses a desire to give, to give both freely and as repayment of a cultural debt. Furthermore, he does not want to revisit Mauss in the same vein as Derrida. ISSN: Additionally, Sloterdijk understands gift theory as relevant to the economy of the modern state, asserting that taxes ought to be understood as gifts, not debts Sloterdijk Looking at translation acts as an expression of thymotic spirit that participate in reciprocal gift exchanges between individuals, languages, and cultures brings out aspects of translation that are not always already appropriating or aligned with hegemonic power or the control of imperialism.

However, generosity is not the only expression of this thymotic desire. Instead, they are motivated by a need to give suffering to those who have denied them recognition. In other words, the gift, like Christ, has a double nature, i. ISSN: already theorized a similar relationship between gift-giving, pride, and rage within the Brazilian social milieu. Sloterdijk describes a similar moment, where revenge responds to the unmet desire to be able to reciprocate, the rage born of inequality between those who are living in the same household or in the same society, as Schwarz describes with Brazil.

In his translations of poems by translators of Mexican poetry, he de- monstrates a generous spirit of participating in a gift exchange of equals. In his translation gifts, Pacheco expresses both generous reciprocity and reciprocity taken to the point of rage.

In my analysis of his interactions with translators from Spanish to English, he figures literary translations as producing a site of gift exchange, as parado- xical gifts that are both voluntary and compulsory, and as immaterial gifts which can be both given and kept at the same time.

While Pacheco translated widely from world poetry, my case study focuses on his poetic responses to some of his own translators into English and his responses to others who established new connections between the Spanish and English languages in an American Hemispheric vein.

Ronald J. ISSN: el tiempo Yet his translations are seldom incorporated into this analysis, nor have they been fully evaluated as creative work. This term also relates to his concept of poetry as the result of the collective practice of poetic work.

He includes translations in most of his chapbooks and in the first two editions of his collected works Tarde o temprano and and publishes a volume entirely comprised of translations, his collection Aproximaciones.

Studied within the framework of Mexican and Spanish- American networks of translation practice, his work is compared to 13 The polyvocal nature of his work as related to his translation practice is supported by the fact that he also invents three other heteronyms, alternative poetic personas with invented biographies: Gordon Woolf, Piero Quercia, and Azevedo Oliveira.

Pacheco claims to translate their works from English, Italian, and Portuguese, and includes them in Aproximaciones as though they are translations from existing authors. His re-translations of works already rendered into Spanish invite comparative study Isibasi Pouchin: His translations of T.

Eliot, as I argue elsewhere, represent a similar response to other available Spanish versions, in which he chooses to draw closer to the metric qualities of the source text but pushes the lexical variety further away, choosing particular Spanish vocabularies that evoke a parti- cularly Mexican orality or environment to exploit moments in which his translation can expand the Western landscapes of the USA imaginary to include Mexico.

My intention here is to focus on the reciprocity involved in the gesture of translating work by lesser- known poets who are also translators of Mexican poetry into English, including but not limited to his own translators. One translation practice that sets Pacheco apart from these other members of his generation: in addition to the homage to and cannibalization of these poets of universal renown, he translates selected original poems by three poets who translated him: Edward Dorn, Alastair Reid,14 and George McWhirter.

Pacheco also never translated anything by Gordon Brotherston, another of his first translators. Brotherston never published poetry, just scholarship on the poetry of indigenous peoples of the Americas and of Latin American poets.

For example, Pacheco writes many animal poems, often expressing a connection with the extra- human. While Pacheco reciprocates some gifts received from his translators, he does not always accept their attentions as benign or generous. In the case of George B.

The phone call and telegram he received from Moore did exist, as Elena Poniatowska and Friis Poniatowska ; Friis confirm. And you want to interview me.

And these lines come to me. More than errors, these elements in the translations by Moore indicate a failure to make the poem his own. According to my reading, Moore has not fully given the gift of his own invention through his translations.

ISSN: earliest poems, the translators Gordon Brotherston and Ed Dorn make some changes in vocabulary and lineation, which Pacheco later takes back into Spanish, altering the poem significantly in subsequent editions of his collected works. Additionally, these other translators all traveled to Mexico rather than issuing invitations from the USA for Pacheco to visit them there.

In the case of his translation from Archibald MacLeish, the selection Pacheco translates from the Pulitzer prize-winning epic poem Conquistador constitutes a gesture to pay a debt, to return the gift made by the author to Mexican cultural heritage as a whole. Pacheco But more importantly, the Band of Wild Petticoats accords Pacheco with it's highest honor , which is of course undying love.

I first encountered his writing while completing my undergraduate studies in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I read it again today and was struck by the complexities lying beneath the deceptively smooth surface of this story. Source This novella is written in first person from the perspective of an adult man recollecting a pivotal moment of his early adolescence: He falls in love with a schoolmate's mother, Mariana, from the moment he lays eyes on her.

Immediately after admitting to himself that he was in love with Mariana, half way through the story, the reader learns the narrator's name for the first time: It is as though his awareness of his ability to love made him suddenly worthy of his name, of his own identity.

Later in the story, Carlitos is compelled professes his love to Mariana. She reacts with a great tenderness but makes it clear that it is an impossible love because of the difference in their ages she claims to be "ancient" at !

The short story is narrated by Carlos, as an adult, recounting his memories as a boy growing up in Mexico City in the late s and s. Initially, Carlos' speech evokes his primary school and the games the children played.

The children would bully the Japanese student Toru and the two indigenous children Peralta and Rosales. After Carlitos defends Jim in a fight with Rosales, he invites him over to his house for a snack after school. He vows to keep the memory of meeting her intact for the rest of his life.

Carlitos, convinced he was in love with Mariana, began to visit Jim's house as often as he could, hiding his emotions from Jim. One day, however, his emotions overcome him and he rushes out of school to see her.


When Carlitos returned to school, Jim caught on to the situation and told their teacher what happened. After some time and a change in schools, Carlitos encounters Rosales on a bus. After chasing him down, Rosales agrees to speak with him over lunch. He reveals that Mariana had allegedly killed herself after the events of the past year, and that Jim no longer attended their school.

The doorman claimed to have no recollection of Mariana or Jim, and when Carlitos went to ask the owner, he told him to mind his own business.
