Despiece peatonal | Respiración continua by Julio Reija

A (Not Exclusively) Double Book

Alessandro Mistrorigo    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



The last poetry book of Julio Reija combines two different poetry collections in the same object though a very peculiar layout designed by the same author. Far from looking for a mere rhetorical effect, the specific layout of the book is constitutive of the way Reija understands poetry: his practice of poetry is a continuous exercise in which words are literally and desperately disjointed, fragmented, took apart in a writing that is always searching for a new form. Julio Reija’s writing combines the derridian deconstruction of logos (language and though) with an ethical posture against the overwhelming power of mass media in contemporary world.
