Ángel García Galiano’s latest book of poems titled Geofanías is a journey that is both exterior, through places around the world, and interior and more intimate. The gaze of the lyrical self extends between the representation of such landscapes and the contemplation that leads beyond their beauty. In these spaces the poet finds a dimen- sion that connects with the mystical tradition of Spanish poetry, but not alone. Cliffs, monasteries, sanctuaries, sacred mountains, bridges, caves, islands are all occasions for the experience to become poetic language through which the reader can also par- ticipate in the encounter with the sacred: that geographical epiphany whose "glimps- es and reflections" make up a double reading: the most expository and psalmodic and the one that is barely naked and sober, hidden but visible within the poems themselves.

Abstract

Ángel García Galiano’s latest book of poems titled Geofanías is a journey that is both exterior, through places around the world, and interior and more intimate. The gaze of the lyrical self extends between the representation of such landscapes and the contemplation that leads beyond their beauty. In these spaces the poet finds a dimen- sion that connects with the mystical tradition of Spanish poetry, but not alone. Cliffs, monasteries, sanctuaries, sacred mountains, bridges, caves, islands are all occasions for the experience to become poetic language through which the reader can also par- ticipate in the encounter with the sacred: that geographical epiphany whose "glimps- es and reflections" make up a double reading: the most expository and psalmodic and the one that is barely naked and sober, hidden but visible within the poems themselves.
