Adventure


In fiction, the adventurer figure or Picaro may be regarded as a descendant of the knight-errant of Medieval romance. Like the knight, the adventurer roams through episodic encounters, usually involving wealth, romance, or fighting. Unlike the knight, the adventurer was a realistic figure, often lower class or otherwise impoverished, who is forced to make his way to fortune, often by deceit. Also, an adventurer is a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

Belvedere

By: Raúl Rodríguez Del Río

Deberíamos exceder el lenguaje para recalar en la piel. La poesía es como un cielo castrado de interioridades si no asumimos la transgresión hacia el encuentro.

La impronta personal es importante, todos hemos aprendido a cabalgar a lomos de algún animal salvaje y lírico, impregnándonos de esencias, amancebados como infinitas rameras.
