Description :

ENGLISH

From the Exile was born as a poetic memoir to describe the experience of being born in Venezuela in 1988 to the publication of this poem collection in 2019.
This period entitles the last years of the Venezuelan democracy, already bruised by the discontent caused by the different political parties in the country before the arrival of Hugo Chavez Frias in 1998. In addition, it also describes how as the years passed, the elected president turned into an authoritarian figure sheltered by the Castro-communism ideology that firmly followed until his death in 2013.
Nevertheless, in spite of the death of the dictator, the suffering of the Venezuelans was far from culminating, because when Chavez died the power passed to his acolyte Nicolás Maduro Moros. The once time bus driver took the power of the country through fraudulent elections, that were controlled by an electoral council, mostly Chavista.
Maduro, who would follow the Chavista and Castro-communism legacy, led Venezuela to preside over the lists of the world's most dangerous and poor countries. In this state, Venezuela struggled with hyperinflation never seen before in the oil nation’s history causing the scarcity of commodities, such as food and medicine throughout the region.
Resulting in millions of inhabitants fleeing in what was known by the name of Venezuelan diaspora looking for the future that was taken from them in other countries. The nostalgia for the lost country, from exile.



ESPAÑOL


Desde el Exilio nace como un testimonio poético para describir la experiencia de nacer en la Venezuela de 1988 hasta el momento de la publicación de la primera edición del poemario en el año 2019.
Este periodo abarca los últimos años de la democracia venezolana, ya golpeada por el descontento que causaban los diferentes partidos políticos en el país antes de la llegada de Hugo Chávez Frías en el año 1998 y como la figura del presidente electo fue tornándose en la de una figura autoritaria, amparado por los principios castrocomunistas que férreamente siguió hasta su muerte en el año 2013. Sin embargo, a pesar de la muerte del dictador el sufrimiento de los venezolanos estaba lejos de culminar, pues al morir Chávez el poder pasó a su acólito Nicolás Maduro Moros que tomó el mando a través de elecciones fraudulentas, controladas por un aparato electoral mayoritariamente chavista. Maduro, quien seguiría el legado chavista y castrocomunista, llevó a Venezuela a presidir las listas de los países más peligrosos y pobres del mundo, con una hiperinflación nunca antes vista en la historia de la nación petrolera que ocasionó la escasez de productos básicos, como alimentos y medicinas en toda la región. Esta situación devendría en la huida de millones de habitantes en lo que se conoció con el nombre de Diáspora Venezolana, quienes buscarían el futuro arrebatado en otros países a lo largo del mundo y con ello, la añoranza por el país perdido desde el exilio.


Thanks!

No, it's one or the other, not both.
