CONFERENCIA: Charla Desnudando las palabras:- Spanish Language Version

Solo quiero añadir que desde mi punto de vista la poesía nace desde la realidad, de la vida misma, a ras de suelo. Porque la vida misma, es toda poesía. Como diría el poeta y cantor Horacio Guarany: “si se calla el cantor (el o la poeta), calla la vida, porque la vida misma es toda un canto….”
