Alphabet is one of the essential books of European poetry of the twentieth century. Until today it was, incomprehensibly, unpublished in our language.
Christensen plays with the very matter with which the world is built: letters, and their mysterious order. With that magma report and primigenio, it recreates the world and its destruction. Verse by verse, letter by letter, molding each of the things that populate it ?? love, childhood, old age, oblivion, hatred, death, memory ?? Until the tree of words, the tree of life, arises, beautiful and undamaged, before us.
