A Rilke, variaciones

Rafael Cadenas
A Rilke, variaciones / To Rilke, Variations

Anthology / Selection, Galaxia Gutenberg (March 2024)

In this anthology the Venezuelan poet Rafael Cadenas describes the hesitant manner in which he initially approached the work of Rainer Maria Rilke, the absolute protagonist of this book, which is simultaneously a tribute, critical reading, and testimony of an elective – and spiritual – affinity that has endured for decades. Cadenas' writing, always intense and austere, is sharpened even further in the poems that articulate this moving and powerful dialogue with the author of Elegías de Duino, one of the central poets of the 20th century.

Ana María Moix was the only woman included in the celebrated anthology Nueve novísimos, published in 1970, which signposted a new aesthetic in Spanish poetry and cleared the way for a group of poets who were just embarking on a brilliant career. For some reason Ana María Moix's poetry was sidelined and forgotten by the general public, who better remember her as the great story-teller that she was, as well as for her articles in her press, mostly devoted to literature.
