This graphic version of Rin del angelito was conceived as a visual poem and Artist’ Book. Composed by the successive stanzas of the original poem intervened in transparent layers, smudges added digitally or with watercolor, the whiteness and the emptiness emphasize the ascending and descending dialogue of the body (earth and flesh) with the complex notion of the soul. The work concludes with language molding a poetic identity of being —language that is at the same time breath, voice, and empty air. This dialogue is framed by a chorus of silence or natural elements which emerge and fade away as the reading goes by. These charged words bring to mind the elevation of the soul as described by Plato in Phaedrus.
