Marjori Agosín No Juzguéis Essay

1018 words - 4 pages

<<No juzguéis>>El juicio es un gran parte de la vida. Este juicio puede ser justo o injusto, pero siempre hay alguien que no va a estar de acuerdo con alguna característica o acción de otra persona. Marjorie Agosín habla sobre este juicio en su poema <<No juzguéis>>. Ella enfrenta a los hombres a los hechos que ellos no tienen el derecho de juzgar a las mujeres para las acciones que ellas quieren hacer. Ella usa el lenguaje figurativo, referencias a una vida mejor, y acusaciones directas para arrojar luz sobre la hipocresía entre los estándares de los hombres a las mujeres.La mujer comienza el poema diciendo,<<Jueces míos,compañeros de oficina y de habitaciónpadre mío que aún no llegas al cieloamigos y poetas>>.Ella incluye todos los hombres de su vida como jueces que están juzgando algo de su vida. Ella continua diciendo,<<estos pezones que han dibujado en catedralesy museos que han acariciado como la corteza del árbolo como pájaro terrestre atrapado en unamano ondulante,son míos>>.Ella compara sí misma a las mujeres en las pinturas mediante los pezones. Ella no compara sus senos a los senos de las pinturas, pero sus pezones. El sólo uso de los pezones es para dar de comer a un niño. Ella describe la caricia que ha pasado con los pezones con dos símiles: <<como la corteza del árbol>> y <<como pájaro terrestre atrapado en una mano ondulante>>. La corteza de un árbol está adjuntado como un niño bebiendo la leche en los pezones o como las manos de un hombre. El movimiento ondulante que describe ella puede describir las acciones del hombre en los senos, pero la descripción más probable puede ser un niño oscilando en los brazos de la madre.Ella continua sus pensamientos diciendo, <<como son mis pasos que avanzansigilosamente hasta llegar a una costa de marfil, a una costa nueva>>. La costa de marfil es en África y se llama la costa de marfil para la abundancia de elefantes cuyos colmillos son de marfil. Los elefantes son símbolos de la fuerza y el poder, que ella no tiene como resultado de los juicios de los hombres. Ella quiere escapar los juicios y quiere ir a una costa donde no hay preocupaciones.Ella continua el poema diciendo,<<y mi vientre, hundido por cicatrices costureadaspor brujerías y andanzases también míoporque en él si me place, cargaré a una niña…para enseñarle a llamarsey a vivirse en un siempre verano>>.El cuerpo de ella es su cuerpo y nadie tiene el derecho para decir que debe hacer con su cuerpo porque ella es el dueño de su propio cuerpo. Ella describe su vientre como si tuviera muchos hijos o como si tuviera muchos abortos porque su vientre tiene cicatrices...
