TITLE: Surrended but safe
AUTHOR: Lucía Yépez
FIRST EDITION: 1997
Authors dedicated to the religious vocation have expressed themselves powerfully at different times through their love poetry, this relationship can even take on erotic overtones, as Bernini did with his baroque sculptural painting "Ecstasy of St. Teresa" which represents the transverberation of the saint, interpreted as the intimate union with God Himself.
In what way does Lucía Yépez transports us with her book "Scarred but safe" and her religious and sensual lyrics? The literary, mystical, magical and cosmopolitan images are profuse, but it is the religious allusions and metaphors together with powerful figures that predominate in this collection of poems divided into sections: Lady Macbeth, Mare nostrum, Of angels and other profanations and Mansalva.
The poet impeccably combines biblical rituals and symbols with intense erotic references that coincide in form and substance with the liberation of the senses, leading the reader to the idea of a conjunction of body and soul with the loved one.
The paradoxes between the notion of the conventional that many of us have to reach sanctity and Lucia's proposal leads us to contemplate a new way. Let's read Scarred but safe and maybe we will reach heaven.
