A review of ay ay ay de la grifa negra a poem by julia de burgos

You belong to your husband, your master; not me; I belong to nobody, or all, because to all, to all I give myself in my clean feeling and in my thought.

You, honey of courtesan hypocrisies; not me; in all my poems I undress my heart. Negro trozo de negro en que me esculpo, ay ay ay, que mi estatua es toda negra. You, flower of aristocracy; and me, flower of the people. It is my voice because you are the dressing and the essence is me; and the most profound abyss is spread between us.

You are only the ponderous lady very lady; not me; I am life, strength, woman.

You curl your hair and paint yourself; not me; the wind curls my hair, the sun paints me. Ay, ay, ay, my black race is slipping away running with the white race to become brown; to become the race of the future, fraternity of America! Friday, April 08, Poem: A jet black woman, I cry and I laugh at the thrill of being a black statue; of being a piece of the night, where my white teeth flash like lightning; and being a black whip that is twistes on blackness to shape the black nest where the crow lies.

Had he been the slave master that would have been my shame; for among men and among nations, if the slave has no rights, the master has no conscience. You in you have everything and you owe it to everyone, while me, my nothing I owe to nobody.

You are like your world, selfish; not me who gambles everything betting on what I am.

Her feminism, use of irony, and self-conciousness approaches to lyric poetry prefigure subsequent generations of female poets across the Americas.

You in yourself have no say; everyone governs you; your husband, your parents, your family, the priest, the dressmaker, the theatre, the dance hall, the auto, the fine furnishings, the feast, champagne, heaven and hell, and the social, "what will they say.

Julia de Burgos, "Ay ay ay de la grifa negra," tr. You nailed to the static ancestral dividend, and me, a one in the numerical social divider, we are the duel to death who fatally approaches. Ay, ay, ay, my black race is slipping away with a buzz toward the white race it flies to sink in its clear waters; or perhaps the white race will grow dark in the black.

Ay ay ay, que el esclavo fue mi abuelo es mi pena, es mi pena. They lie, Julia de Burgos. Black piece of blackness where I carve myself ay, ay, ay, for my statue is all black.

My grandfather was the slave they say the master bought for thirty pieces of silver.Ay, ay, ay, de la grifa negra Ay, ay, ay, que soy grifa y pura negra; grifería en mi pelo, cafrería en mis labios; y mi chata nariz mozambiquea.
