By Pere Gimferrer

Fechados entre abril de 2004 y diciembre de 2005, estos poemas aparecen (salvo el que cierra el volumen) en estricto orden cronológico, y relatan una singular historia de amor cuyos antecedentes e inicios son también materia del coetáneo libro en prosa Interludio azul. El retorno al castellano, atribuible a l. a. índole misma de l. a. historia, se traduce en una evidente variedad métrica. Resonancias que ya aparecieron en los angeles anterior obra del autor (desde Góngora hasta Rubén Darío e incluso Garcilaso, a menudo en l. a. lectura que de ellos hizo los angeles generación del 27) coexisten con un mosaico de alusiones a literaturas en otras lenguas, al mundo del cine o a l. a. pintura, para relatar una historia contemporánea en una diversidad de tonos y acentos que no se adscribe a tendencia alguna. Se cumplen aquí proféticamente las palabras que Octavio Paz escribió a Gimferrer en 1968: “Dentro de 10 años será usted un hombre joven y dentro de forty un viejo, pero siempre será, estoy seguro, un poeta joven. Con esto no quiero decir un poeta imperfecto sino un poeta dueño de esa perfección que sólo lo joven tiene”.
