Pandémie zombie. Monstres et mystères de Luis Felipe Fabre

Abstract : In Poemas de terror y de misterio (Oaxaca, Almadia, 2013), the poetic field crumbles down, gives away and slips out of its own self – it is no longer a sort of nocturnal wasteland where the poetical writing welcomes the motifs of the Gothic novel, wavering between enticing trivial events and B series episodes. The place of the poem here becomes in turns a nightmarish ground excavating zombies and other post-human faces from the rectangular page, but also the haunting image of the film reel or the grave. Acting as an archaeologist of fear digging out the possibilities of the poetical text until its crudest margins are exposed, this collection builds a performance-text voicing the horror of modern Mexico's irrepressible death pandemic. In this article, we intend to enhance such powerfully spreading terror which only preserves the latent figure of the monster. This deadly terror spreads out, invades all spaces – from the intimate realm and the gradually decaying social space, to the place of the poem itself which appears as a palimpsest-excavation and the source of a necro-writing radiating the obsessive fears of the present.
