Con la memoria al ras de la garganta
“Drago’s verses try to rebuild (and grasp) a reality dismembered by violence, and physical and emotional dislocation. These poems and drawings document the effects of the Latin America dictatorships and simultaneously touch us with its universal themes. They affirm the determination to live with dignity and conscience, above all circumstances, and offer a thread of hope to those who suffer from external violence (political, economic, social) or internal (guilt, grudges).Her poems reveal the power of art to transform suffering and turn it into literary treasures. Each poem invites you to read the next, in a book that delights for its multiple meanings and the presence of an authentic voice of undeniable poetic quality.”
