Tracing the Tracks of Time in Natural Love

Nancy Morejón’s Cántico de la huella

(p.63) 5 Tracing the Tracks of Time in Natural Love
Handmade in Cuba
Gwendolyn Díaz
University Press of Florida

This chapter features a comparative analysis of Cántico de la huella, an erotic elegy by Cuban poet Nancy Morejón, and of Rolando Estévez’s interpretation of the poem in his book design, which included a cover of two lovers perched in a tree face to face. Díaz discusses the literary and artistic traditions that coalesce mind and body as an impression of quantum spacetime, the eternal present of the poetic voice, while she explores the way Estévez captures the essence of the poem and symbolically enhances its sensual quality.

Keywords:   Cántico de la huella, natural love, Erotic elegy, Cuban poet, Nancy Morejón, Rolando Estévez
