A poet’s voice emerges clearly when it is not interpreted through the voice of another, or when it is not constrained by the rules of an ideological space. This way the thoughts freely flow directly onto the paper, allowing us to know more of the author’s philosophy. Understanding this, the second issue of Literal offers the original voices of our guests so that we can take part in their experiences, hear their thoughts and appreciate their work. We speak particularly of Peru’s poetic voice, where J.E. Eielson, Isaac Goldemberg, Miguel Ángel Zapata and Fernando Castro express themselves through images, their poetry and their own words.
Thus, this issue also lends itself to the publication of prominent writers and artists from the United States and Latin America who stamp their voices upon these pages.
