When thinking about Sandy Baldwin’s “The World Order: Basra“, I related the E-Lit work to telling a story to a child. When parents, guardians, or even just elders look to explain an important lesson to children them usually use a short story. This is because, like Calvino’s horse emblem, a story about an everyday event is relatable to children. If one were to try to explain the important lesson in conversation, the children would most liking become confused and miss the point. The E-Lit work is trying to convey a deep thought, but must use a common media to explain it as quickly as possibly. This is like telling a child a story. The story, like the destroying of the words in the poem, convey quickness.
