To read Martínez’s poetry might turn out to be rather disconcerting, or perhaps simple and entertaining for others. It has even given cause for some scientists to see in it a deep problematization of the logic, and not the poetical game that the author was aiming at.
To speak about Juan Luís Martínez’s poetry is to refer to fields where the visual gets mixed with the linguistic to complete a new form of expression. The words and the images manage to build themselves up to a very strong and effective communicative display which at the same time keeps the reader in a constant state of hesitation.
Furthermore, “La Nueva Novela”, which has nothing of a novel about it, manages to disturb the reader by presenting this book with a title which suggests a different reading style.
