The new collection of poems by Mario Calivà entitled "Beyond the Oblivion of the Voice" (Navarra Editore) has just been released. Inside the volume a poem in Arbëreshe language and one in Albanian language dedicated to Giorgio Kastriota Skanderbeg.
The author explains:
In addition to the oblivion of the voice, the emphasis is on one question: the verses are outside the true flatus vocis of the man, since they are immortal. While the voice is subjected to the finiteness of a body that, inexplicably laboriously and without any hope, tries to resist the inevitable time.
The poems of this collection want to bare what existence offers in all its circumstances. The poet must be ready to take inspiration. When this happens, in the silence of poetry, the ephemeral relationship between man and the divine is laid bare.
The inspiration from which these poems move is varied: there are explicit references to the stars, to the moon, to the landscapes of the world: all elements that do not communicate with a voice but with the only presence that is placed in a prelinguistic level.
The roars of the world are described (not the voices) where, unlike the sky that does not lie, almost everything wears a mask. Since poetry represents an elevation from earthly things, it cannot be expressed by the bare voice of man, but only by the poet's verses that only after their engraving can they become a voice that he interprets but never a creative voice.
The poems in arbëreshe and Albanian language want to celebrate the cultural variety of the author.
