Ernesto Priego has written that "G & G was the comic book I was never able to draw." G & G was, indeed, a sort of comic book experience for its earliest readers when it appeared in... More > installments on Never Neutral, Mr. Priego's blog. The poems can be conceptualized as a series of speech balloons and captions formulated as something akin to a dialectical house party in which the characters Gravity and Grace sing in a kind of cozy yet somewhat slippery counterpoint for their Author and ultimately to us all. These are—it must be said—sweet and wistful, notational, allegorical poems. Much is hinted at. Much is left for the reader to fill in. And that is as it should be, no?       —Tom Beckett < Less

Non so se riuscirò a trovare le parole per poterle processare. Parole logorate dall’uso che si aggirano come fantasmi nel castello fatato del linguaggio. Si è al di là... More > delle parole, ma anche nei silenzi si è agitati per la percezione di un mondo abitato dal sogno. Ma ogni atto è un’espressione, fisica e sonora, non si sa da dove provenga il linguaggio, se dalla mimesi, se dalla manipolazione degli oggetti, se dal dolore, sono convinta però che, alla base dell’esperienza umana e della moltitudine espressiva dei segni, ci sia energia in movimento che consente a ciascuno di trovare il suo sé segreto tra pensiero e azione. Pensieri e azioni possono sopravvivere con la globalizzazione della tecnica e la grammatica universale?
