Abstract

This article looks at poetic language in public letters which disrupt the 'neoliberal etiquette', a pattern of behaviours and of language which hold in place neoliberal hegemony. The article engages Ramon Jakobson's notion of 'poeticity' with Paulo Freire's theorization of thought and action in the 'true word', and draws out the affinities between Freire and the Neo-Zapatistas. The analysis focuses on disruptions of the 'phantom language' which is the result of a structural preference for language that disrupts the relationship between 'the word', reality and experience; and on the constitution of resistant subjectivities through the use of the 'true word'.
