Poetics and Poetry

Pere Rovira's poetics is characterised by the inclusion of his life experiences. For example, he inherited from his craftsman father the care and love of the poetic trade and owes to his farmer grandfather the contemplative and playful attitude towards the act of writing; moreover, his love of hunting has shown him the importance of "chasing" and "shooting" the right adjective and the choice of writing in Catalan meant a return to his own language. In this fusion of life and poetry appear Antonio Machado, Jaime Gil de Biedma or Juan Ramón Jiménez as several of his references.
