Analysis and comments on Landscape by Dorothy Parker

Comment 1 of 1, added on September 11th, 2007 at 12:33 PM.

Ah. Sublime beauty. Entitled 'Landscape', she tells us this 'poem has been
removed'. And who did so? And why? The 'copyright' persons. Nameless,
faceless. Yet exerting wicked power, 'insistent', the power to elide,
delete, remove... kill? God-like power. Omnipotent, but also impotent
because He can only remove, cannot add. The landscape of a maddened deity,
angered by His own bumbling, He strikes down His creations blindly, leaving
only empty blasted fields of nothingness. Not even an echo remains. But
there is hope, too: an 'archive'. Where? We must search, find it. It will
hold all the secrets, no doubt. Let us go and seek it out together.
