words of Lina de Feria
Translated by Adriana Pérez Sabido
When rationality makes an immersion in intuitive thinking a construct is made. Mitología del extremo, which includes aphorisms by Jesus Lara Sotelo, has the preeminence to build a sort of trip of reason to the spectacular nature of the idea, not diluted, but syncretic.
It is not a counseling service, but of visibilities of intelligence that will adjust, in the duo of aphorism, its most desirable honey.
The auto-analysis does not stop being an essential part of the content and the final result of the book. Considerations and reconsiderations in more than seven hundred aphorisms make up the composed inner side of a writer that needs the strength of thinking to give diatribes, dilemmas, paradox, and a long sequence of accessing to discoveries of the inner part of the man and his bets on experiences and survivals.
Rufo Caballero’s prologue enhances the great content because the critic was impressed by the significance of every attempt of aphorism. Mitología del extremo is a summary of the ups and downs that meet in life, and there are always truths to bet on, and above all, gathering of living taken to the best reasoning and a provider of possible roads that might interact with the learning of life that one can get for every reader of the book.
Without losing poetics and aesthetic, the volume goes to the most extreme part where symbol and reality mix in order not to twist, but to weigh the performances of human beings in their future.
In a polemic field, this is about a contribution to the critical thinking of the country, and above all, it contains master refined appraisals, with deep reasoning, turned into itself, into an area of human experiences, into the energy to educate, into an intuition to warn.
Jesus Lara Sotelo, painter, photographer, poet and craftsman, besides getting close to music, reaches a peak that gives some aesthetic and hierarchy to his inner side, within the results of his ethical explorations, regarding the relation of the world and man. That is Mitología del extremo book.
