Discussion of four poems from Mexican literary online magazine Broken English LOL (https://brokenenglish.lol/). Discussion of eliterature’s historic preference for “aesthetic difficulty,” and the racial construction of that preference. How EDI discovery work done by the five editors of the Electronic Literature Collection Volume 4, a collection built during Covid, challenged and reframed “difficulty.” Why these four poems by Millennial and GenZ Mexicana feminists calls into question the field’s traditional preference for “difficulty.”
