Where does it take place?
“In essence, all poetry that deserves such a name is elegiac: the river of Heraclitus and Jorge Manrique is the symbol, literary and spiritual, of human finitude. The poet records it not from the experience, but from the memory of the experience. That "remembering to live" that the poetic word attests becomes the invisible marble that defies oblivion. The stone on which Ángeles Carnacea sculpts is not a compact and bulky block. His verses are just splinters, broken and separated fragments between whose gaps the reader must supplement what is missing. It is in these visual silences
that the anguish over the nonsense of death emerges most clearly, in a lyrical minimalism that reproduces, in turn, the
own human dispossession ”Fragment of the foreword by Natalia Carbajosa (Cartagena, February 2021)
