"Man is a man even if he is dark", says Ecuadorian poet Augusto Rodriguez (Guayaquil, 1979), also a storyteller, journalist, editor, anthologist, professor and enthusiastic promoter of culture -responsible, in his hometown, for the International Poetry Festival "Ileana Espinel Cedeño", already one of the best in America-. The above quote will come as no surprise to those who have been following Rodriguez's career, because the sharp dialectic established between the devastating dark and the insurgent life is an inseparable part of his poetics. We know it well here since 2007, when Cantos contra un dinosaurio ebrio (La Garúa Libros) was published; the first of the volumes published in Spain by one of the most outstanding creators of the new Ibero-American literature, with more than twenty works to his credit spread around the world -Mexico, Chile, Cuba, Peru, France, Serbia or Romania-.
