Elizabeth Escudero. Fiat umbra
One of the books that inevitably I will throw in the suitcase when in a few days I go out of holidays, in the direction of the south (who said: when it always sees trips towards the south; and if you have to go to the north, see towards the south and turn to the world?) it will be a Fiat umbra, of Elizabeth Escudero, poems with references to Machado, as I read in ABC:
Pawned in saving “this interested and false contrast that there do the poets of the domineering poetry between the refined thing and the popular thing” writer Elizabeth Escudero he preaches with the example. His newly released Fiat umbra (Pretexts), a clear homage to Antonio Machado, is for the critic Luis García Jambrina “a magnificent sample of popular poetry. His reading aloud saves us and us desintoxica of so many dry and useless, refined and pretentious poetry”. Born in Quintana of the Serenade (Badajoz), he writes and recites poems from very small. Teacher of the UNED, expert lover of the movies, driving of the magazine Archipelago, is an authoress also of books like Sewing and singing or Number and aroma.
If it longs for them, puncture here to read an interview with Elizabeth, in whom he says things as “We Are in the age of the substitute. The diet in which we live is characterized for being the diet of the substitute and the bundle.”
Of Fiat umbra Chantal Maillard says: "On the halfway between the haiku and the popular judgment or the Castilian brief metrics, these 'Chinese lanterns' expand his light in my half-light.” (Of The article about The Country Poetry and thought)

To die for the ideas!:
that happens to him
It reaches me:
smeared the arrow comes
it trembles in the water:
of what doubt?
