Show that love is capable of winning even in arid times that dry the tears of sensitivity. It is with this theme that the consecrated poets Álvaro Alves de Faria and Denise Emmer launch their newest poetry book “O secreto silêncio do amor” (Publisher Penalux, 2021).
In the work, Love is seen in a unique and singular way by the authors who weave in their verses the chords of desire. In 42 well-sung and narrated poems, they present the power of the arrows of Eros that tear the souls and the two beings that correspond by means of letters. Through lyricism, poets present desire as the search for an encounter, the intertwining of two lives that touch each other through the labyrinth of poeticity.
The preface is signed by the writer, translator and editor Thereza Christina Rocque da Motta, that analyzes the work from the perspective of letters exchanged between issuer and recipient, citing excerpts for the understanding of the communication between two beings touched by Love. The work also shows that Love has its setbacks, the paradoxical side, bringing together, in the poetic image, the dream and the tearing of flesh and spirit.
Alvaro, for example, in some verses, brings us to the unknown and mysterious dimension of this feeling, that attacks us subtly, as shown in the verses: “Then be inside you to feel more,/so much more that I don't know the way back,/so much more and so deeply / to feel myself being part of your body ”.
Denise reaffirms, with your own voice, the silence and the silent language of that feeling mor. The book also shows the original and differentiated speeches of men and women, that are touched by the power of Eros in bringing the minds and bodies of the lover and the beloved closer together, as presented in the verses: "At your side I am a woman with birds in her skirts / As we walk in a park where you will be the night // And I the naked night that opens / In some distant and starry bed".
