Vacu, the suffering being

“Some poets you read and forget. But some poets you read and cannot ever forget, not only because they have struck a chord in our soul, but because they drain us and leave us out in the cold. Manel Queralt belongs to such breed of poets. That is why I take the liberty of giving the reader the following warning: what he will find … is philosophical poetry … of personal quest, an honest and at the same time crude exploration of the human condition … The poet leaves us standing before the horror of the void and at the edge of the cliff he abandons us so that we consider where we are, who we are and what is to provide meaning to our lives.”
