The twilight of the "novísimos"

The weightless aspect of the actual poetry is showed in this book of Yamilka Noa

Echoes of Sorrow isn't a common poetry book. In there, six are the poems which basis the argument and a perfect resume of the lyric idea of Yamilka: When hope dies, Oh death!, Premature death, Black suffering, This is sadness and The secret of pain. In they, she explains an interesting mixture of self-suffering and metaphoric uses of posmodern poetry by the true essence of novísimos.


I alight
on weakness.
I'm a little butterfly
to losing my strength.
But I breathe,
there's still spirit,
there are colours
decorating my wings.
I'm not alone,
never alone.
