Louise Glück: Proofs & Theories

The world is complete without us. Intolerable fact.
To which the poet responds by rebelling, wanting to prove otherwise.

(Louise Glück, Proofs & Theories, page 91)

Well, I guess I had a good moment of inspiration… buying this amazing series of essays by the new Nobel Prize Louise Glück… some time ago in 2019… which I’m reading now for the 3rd time.
From your heart to your soul… and from there to the universe!
That’s how I “feel” your poet’s voice reading the complexity of the apparent simple words you put in your verses.
My heartiest congratulations for the NP!
In German I would say Herzliche GLÜCKwünsche!

    Gracias por esa generosidad tan tuya Poeta, por compartir tu intuición poética, ese Riecher alemán que tienes para la buena poesìa, para conectar con el alma de esas grandes mujeres poetas que tú sabes entender como nadie. Quien haya visto la luz de tus ojos me comprendería…
