Recordando a Roque Dalton

Recordando a Roque DaltonRoque Dalton

Gran parte de la vida de Roque está envuelta en una serie de mitos que el poeta mismo inventó. Eran el producto de su prodigiosa imaginación, así como una de las maneras en las que consiguió atravesar las contradicciones inherentes a su origen e ideas en torno a las clases sociales. Un extraño y fortuito incidente podría ser el núcleo de una gran historia. Una de ellas concierne a su padre, Winnall Dalton, a quien el poeta a menudo creyó descendiente de los Dalton Brothers en Kansas.     

Roque fue encarcelado varias veces, y una de sus fugas también figura en la historia de vida que escribió y reescribió —quizás parcialmente cierta, quizás inventada, quizás enraizada en la verdad pero tejida para hacer la leyenda. Afirmó que un terremoto había destruido el muro de la prisión donde estaba recluido y en el que sería ejecutado por un pelotón a la mañana siguiente. Según el poeta, salió, se fundió en una procesión religiosa y se las arregló para salir del país camino a México. Aquello sería a principios de 1964. Él y yo nos conocimos en el Encuentro internacional de poetasde El Corno Emplumado, la revista que yo editaba, junto a otros que también se alojaron en la ciudad en aquella ocasión.    

A partir de entonces, fuimos amigos y camaradas. A menudo trabajamos juntos en distintos proyectos. Fuimos Jurado de poesía en el Premio de la Casa de las Américas en 1970. Él me ayudó con algunas traducciones de César Vallejo que estaba haciendo en ese momento. Yo tecleé el largo manuscrito que se convertiría luego en Miguel Mármol. Nuestros hijos crecieron juntos en la Cuba de aquellos años. 

A principios de esa década yo era una feminista incipiente, y las actitudes de “macho” de Roque eran bien conocidas. Tuvimos muchas discusiones sobre las mujeres en la sociedad. Y después de su muerte, cuando leí sus Poemas clandestinos que incluyen los de la ficticia "Vilma Flores" —una identidad poética que él inventó para tratar el tema— quise pensar que eran su respuesta final a aquellos debates.     

Poesía, ficción, no ficción y ensayos de Roque representan una era. Su humor era una constante. Pero bajo del humor había una evaluación seria de la situación en América Latina y en su “Pulgarcito”: El Salvador. Que fuera asesinado por miembros de su propia organización revolucionaria sigue siendo un crimen y una tragedia.   

Cuando pienso en aquellos años —en los que todos creíamos que podíamos cambiar el mundo y expandir la justicia, y cuando la poesía era la ruta para algunos de nosotros— veo a Roque en la primera línea, liderando con jocosidad e inmenso talento. Fue el coyote de nuestro tiempo.

    Its such as you read my mind! You seem to know so much approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or
    something. I feel that you just could do with some p.c. to pressure
    the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.

    Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise
    so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Definitely consider that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the simplest factor to take
    into account of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as folks consider issues that they plainly do not
    realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as outlined out the whole thing with no need side effect , other folks
    could take a signal. Will likely be again to get
    more. Thank you

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Esto significa, que cuando recibes tu ramo de flores, al percibir estas flores que están sueltas, tu misma siguiendo unas indicaciones para su cuidado y mantenimiento, puedes
    por servirnos de un ejemplo comprar un jarrón y montar a tu imagen y
    semejanza diseñar y decorar tu propio jarrón con las flores
    que has recibido en tu ramo, o sea tu misma puedes hacer de ese
    ramo otro ramo, diseñar tu propio arreglo floral a tu gusto personal.
