The poets Acerina Cruz and José María García Linares talk about literature and arenas, poetry and wind, in a meeting next Friday, October 18, at 8:00 p.m., in the Canaima bookstore. In this act, both will present their recent respective poems, If the sand resists, of Acerina Cruz, and Then the wind began, by José María García Linares, published by the national publishing house Versatile.
In If the sand resists, the poet Acerina Cruz (San Bartolomé de Tirajana, 1983) poetizes the images, contradictions and evocations of a phenomenon as rooted in the island's imaginary as tourism. The volume has a prologue by the poet Ben Clark, who states that: "This is a book that runs through the author's imaginary and traces its island origins to rescue the contradictory feelings and feelings that arise from that phenomenon. I miss so ingrained today in our society: tourism. The poetic gaze of Acerina Cruz starts from a subjective self that brings us closer to characters and landscapes that are portrayed through a prism that seeks objectivity. "
In addition, he adds that "the poet puts us in trains, airports, terraces, swimming pools, apartments, beaches € places of passage, places not habitable but inhabited by others, tourists, the protagonists of the curiosity of the girl who gives voice to many poems and those responsible, to a large extent, for feelings of uprooting and unease that run through the book, without falling into the complaint or the complaint.Each portrait speaks for itself and the poet invites the reader to create their own opinion on the phenomenon (a phenomenon that is, of course, social but also intimate and internal; we are tourists of ourselves). "
For his part, professor and critic José Luis Fernández de la Torre (Melilla, 1977) argues in the prologue of Then the wind began, José María García Linares, who: "The wind of the title, in addition, may derive from this nostalgia or oblivion, but in any case the air principles attract-lead a writer – this time yes – sure of his word, of his biopoetics in which evanescent anchors or readings 'distill' that commitment to 'revelation', for one's own and different poetry. García Linares – or the new Cairasco de Figueroa, that golden poet so decisive and praised by Cervantes – that from the Canary Islands he is committed to an extreme poetic language and on the margin, in the exact delimitation of an abyss in which this new book appears as a public experimentation of the intimate, between rationalist illuminism and García Márquez's novel, to remain in the lyrical reflection of a word that is offered as enjoyment and knowledge, more beyond writing the book of quotes, places, spaces and characters of One hundred years of solitude: for example, Remedios, Catarino, the Catalan Sage, Úrsula, etc. ".
