Cara Inversa (2014) incorporates a variety of voices from the past, as well as lyric and non-lyric styles and themes embodied in different perceptions of time: a mythical time (Breogan), a sociopolitical and historical time -19th and 20th c., the Spanish civil war, the postwar period, exile and migration-, a literary time -Galician nationalist poetry, and vanguard aesthetics, artist’s books and object poems- an individual and collective time of the memory -pain, trauma, anonymity, forgetfulness-. Cara Inversa also projects a series of antagonistic discourses circumscribed linguistically and aesthetically to the marginal and to the periphery, in their condition of cultural artifacts configuring a plurality of epistemes. Cara inversa’s heterogeneous nature: two authors, two genres (verbal and visual-object poems), lyric and non-lyric poems, tradition and modernity, and various temporalities, offers an intertextual and intersubjective experience in dialogue with Galicia’s literary historiography.
