Launch of the book "Tipus i contratipus" by Benet Rossell
Published by Eumo Editorial and Café Central ("Jardins de Samarcanda" collection)
With a working method based on improvisation, paradox and creative freedom, Rossell's poetry moves through a microworld of characters – types and countertypes that could just as easily be Lacan, de Kooning or Cage, as the bogeyman or a tango dancer –, which reveal fundamental, absurd or conceptual stories pervaded by a language made out of popular expressions and the vocabulary of western Catalonia.
In this book, readers will find formal poems written in Italian, dialogues with nobody and paratheatrical micropieces; a whole gestural repertoire that draws us near to the mystery of poetry:
El cor no l'ha vist mai ningú
Com la ratlla del cul
Els espills mai no donen la cara
The book launch will feature micro-presentations by: Juan Antonio Masoliver, Carles Andreu, Joaquim Sala-Sanahuja, Sonia Hernández, Teresa Grandas, Josep-Ramon Bach, Joaquim Pibernat, Andreu Clapés, Matthew Tree, Carles Maria Sanuy, Yamamoto, Lilyana Petrova, André Chêdas, Antoni Clapés, and etcètera, among others.
