Spanish Contemporary Poetry, Jesús Aguado, family violence
Spanish and Portuguese Language and Literature
Jesús Aguado's recent book, Carta al padre (2016), deals openly with both physical and emotional trauma suffered at the hands of toxic masculinity. The poetic voice vindicates his younger self, abused by the father, through the written word that transfers power to the weak and disenfranchised. Lacanian naming and patriarchal structures (family, language) become transparent through Aguado's unique poetic sensibility.
