Description

The poetry of Mercedes Roffe knows how to surround the silence, seduce the readers from an abyss feeling, and dares to skirt the limits in a plural sense. It is a return trip to the genesis and future of every word, a journey whose highest points happen whenever lightning appears. That is, whenever Roffe captures the poetic brilliance of words. She is currently one of the greatest voices in Argentine poetry. Some of the most sensitive aspects of human experiences are included in this ninth book of poems.show more

Review Text

La poesía de Mercedes Roffé sabe rodear el silencio, seduce desde la sensación de abismo, se atreve a bordear los límites de un sentido siempre plural. Su poesía es un viaje de ida y vuelta a la génesis y al futuro de cada palabra, un viaje cuyos puntos más altos suceden cada vez que aparece el relámpago. Es decir, cada vez que Roffé logra capturar, en toda su intensidad, el resplandor poético de las palabras. En Carcaj : Vislumbres el poder extra-subjetivo de la palabra transforma la mirada del poeta Ây del lector hasta dejarle entrever aquella alteridad, aquella dimensión suprema que trasciende el plano de lo más inmediato. La mirada y la palabra circulan así entre esas dos instancias Âla realidad y lo Real hasta ofrecer una visión de la existencia humana llevada a su límite expresivo. Mercedes Roffé es una de las voces de la poesía argentina actual de mayor reconocimiento internacional. Madurez de visión y una depurada factura le permiten abordar en este, su noveno poemario, algunos de los aspectos más sensibles de la experiencia humana.show more
