¿Qué hace Ofelia en nuestra época? ¿Quién escucha su lamento antes de que se sumerja en la vulgaridad y el tedio? Es como preguntar por el sentido de la poesía en nuestro tiempo de velocidad y vacío.

 

What does Ophelia do in our era? Who hears her lament before she sinks into vulgarity and tedium? It is like asking for the meaning of poetry in our age of speed and space.

Gloria, tras la muerte de su padre, se recluye en su casa como un ermitaño en un laberíntico refugio, convirtiéndose en usurpadora, dueña y esclava de una cárcel en la que conviven también fantasmas de otras historias no menos intricadas.

 

Following her father’s death, Gloria shuts herself up in her home like a hermit inside a labyrinthine retreat, becoming usurper, mistress and slave in a prison that houses other ghosts with no less tangled histories.

Inspirada en la vida y la obra de la poeta cubana María Luisa Milanés (1893-1919), ardiente feminista y patriota, quien acabó muy joven con su vida, en parte por su infeliz matrimonio y el férreo dogmatismo de la época. Sus poemas son duras críticas a la cultura patriarcal y de solidaridad con la mujer y otros seres oprimidos.

 

Inspired on the life and work of Cuban poet María Luisa Milanés (1893-1919), an ardent feminist and patriot who killed herself at a very young age, in part because of an unhappy marriage and the dogmatism of the time. She wrote poems that were deep critiques of patriarchal culture and expressions of solidarity with other women and all oppressed people.
