Iwana free pdf Con Iwana, el poeta chileno Alvaro Leiva consolida una obra que viene gestandose desde 1987 para instalarse en una suerte de intersticio de la nueva lirica panamericana. Ademas de alter ego, la iguana es tambien un tributo a los varios desplazamientos linguisticos y territoriales del autor: liroforo bilingue que adopta la lengua de la metropolis norteamericana al castellano chileno para hacerla transitar de la urbe en decadencia al paisaje utopico de la anarquia verde, pasando por la cienaga del manglar y la transformacion espiritual camaleonica donde "yo, tu y el camaleon somos todos."

After the events of 9/11, author Alvaro Leiva wrote this bilingual collection of poems to create a transformative experience in order to understand this brave new world. For the poet this process of speaking, "like iguanas would do," represents a spiritual journey, in a desperate attempt to keep the dreams of the past alive. Throughout these poems and prose a reptile travels from the city to the countryside, from the volcanic southern Chile to the subtropical South Florida in the US. Therefore, the poet, who has turned into an iwana, his artifice, is the personification of its own process of transformation. Despues de los eventos de "9/11" de Nueva York, poeta Alvaro Leiva escribio esta coleccion bilingue para crear una experiencia transformativa para que pueda comprender esta edad nueva. Para el poeta el proceso de hablar "como la harian las iguanas," representa un viaje espiritual en un intento desesperado por mantener los suenos vivos. En estos poemas, prosas un reptil se desplaza de la ciudad al campo, desde el sur volcanico de Chile hasta el sur de Florida en los Estados Unidos. Asi, convertido en iwana, su artificio, el poeta es la personificacion misma de su proceso de transformacion."
