In her debut full-length work, Collected Works, the Swedish writer Lydia Sandgren invents a complex plot that obeys only the main goal – thinking about art, understanding the intricacies of artistic creativity and its connection with life. In The Light I Feel, Romanian thinker Lucian Blaga creates a poetic space about expanding childhood: an adult seeks to recreate a golden age with the tools of heightened expressionism. Another book of poems by another philosopher, What a Bird Drinks from a Fountain, Not Water, by Spanish-Belgian origin Chantal Maillard, draws a map to deal with pain and injury, damage and punishment, blindness and innocence, selfhood. and his absence, the other(s), hunger and loss, death and sorrow, fear and guilt.
The late Tezer Özlü also returns to her childhood in “Cold Nights of Childhood”, an autobiography in which she writes a lament that encapsulates her entire life. The life she felt. Subjective truth that does not cease to be part of the truth as the sum of what is real and the way it is said. In The Philosophy of Fear, Bernat Castani Prado writes a moral philosophy and even a guide to sociology and even psychology in order to learn how to deal with fear, while Empar Moliner’s Bienamada offers a ruthless and harsh moral diagnosis of our present, told, moreover, in flawless way. Francisco Rico’s long loyalty brings together articles and texts that form a mosaic of personal, professional, and sometimes simply mythical debts.
Finally, most Argentines live in non-places whose beliefs and practices are part of both rural and urban life, as well as in small towns and cities that keep their eyes on the capital, Buenos Aires, which, along with its outskirts, lives 38.9 % of the population. Despite this, Argentine literature continues to frame itself around the usual opposition between town and country and, in particular, between the capital and what some call the “interior”. But, as evidenced by several recent works, Caroline Sborowski’s Concordia; Alfredo Staffolani’s The Good Exile and Vicky Garcia’s The Beasts are also many authors who did not take an orientalizing view of the countryside or strategically incorporated it into their writings.

The poetry of Lucian Blaga, censored for his membership in the Fascist Party, recreates the space of a lost childhood and asks himself questions that have not yet been answered. Criticism of Martin Lopez-Vega.
