Tetróptico reflects the author''s starting experiment, which in four books (two of them previously published, The Axial Tree, 1996, Instituto de Estudios Modernistas, Traces of Selenia, 1998, Morandi, plus Metropolis Inside and Prosenia included here) travels from silence to prose under the constant of fragmentation.
Four looks that show from the arcane, the libido, the rebelliousness in artificial paradises and the absence of anecdote in ascetism, the possibility of language to create self universes outside the set of logical discourse, an aesthetic attempt to transcend human perception limitations and its expressions (fragments of an unfathomable whole).
The optics in common is that of a child playing with language as if it were a mecano, an innocent child free of any rules:
(From the Preface)
"A child was watching the approaching storm. Everyone ran for cover from it afraid of lightning that in the distance threatened to carbonize the place. Leaves rattled and trees swayed by the force of sudden wild wind. The mothers held hands to their children, frightened by those scary faces, dropped their heads and hid in the big house...
...That boy decided for, over and despite them, to bring up his infantile work avoiding confusion with their fears. He had become an adult learning to reject everything that is not love. Sometimes, in the storms, that lady visits him and, together, remain soft in the dark waiting for lightning to illuminate them"
