Sample text

For by surrendering himself to the unexpected outcomes of writing, Rodríguez confronts the elusiveness, equivocality, and instability of his medium and so of his identity, his being. One of the seminal characteristics of Rodríguez's poetry illustrative of this dynamic is his careful structuring of each volume. 7 Although he writes individual lyric poems (like any other poet), he arranges them sequentially in each work, so that we must read the individual poems not only paradigmatically as discrete moments of lyric expression in relation to the tradition, but also syntagmatically in relation to the other poems preceding and following in the individual work.

The combination of the paradigmatic and syntagmatic, the interplay of stability and instability, the deconstruction of product and process, work and text, are distinctive aspects of Rodríguez's transgressive poetics. These dualities raise two related issues that need to be addressed in this introduction: (1) the concept/question of the "author" and identity; and (2) transgression. 9 As Kenneth Gergen avers in The Saturated Self: Dilemmas of Identity in Contemporary Life, "much of our contemporary vocabulary of the person, along with associated ways of life, finds its origins in the romantic period.
