“A meeting point for poets of all latitudes”
— Víctor Rodríguez Núñez

Review: The Infinite's Ash, by Víctor Rodríguez Núñez

Víctor Rodríguez Núñez is for me a unique poet, not comparable to anyone writing today in any language I can read. It seems his life was guided from the start by a very lucid and ambitious destiny with utmost precision. With a plan how to expose and open a human being to become a witness and a creator. Immense is his power of inheritance, the fierceness of his autonomy, compassion and instinct to broaden the livable space. Nobody else has such a gift to encompass so many crossroads, to be at the heights once Vallejo was, but so free and singular. Nobody else can be gracious, quotidian, marvellously strange and a winner of history at the same time. With branches and roots still expanding.
