LAUDING ASPIRATIONS FOR TRUTH, PEP RAMIS BRINGS PHYSICAL PRESENCE TO THE SHIMMERING VERSE OF ERRI DE LUCA.
“I value anything that will be worthless tomorrow, and anything that is not worth much today.” So wrote Erri De Luca in a poem-cum-manifesto. Now his words dance in the mouth of a Beckett-like character in the course of the peregrinations of a metaphysical clown who lets each one of his movements speak with great emotional and existential force. He rambles alone, seeking truth and paradise, but his quest to experience beauty comes up against black marks gradually emerging from beneath white matter, opening scope for philosophy and poetry. An absolute masterpiece!
