The Mystic Thrones of Night


THE MYSTIC THRONES OF NIGHT

“Victor Avila's The Mystic Thrones of Night is a passport to the eternal shores of the imagination. What is touched and tasted, a fragrance caught and a view from the corner of one's eye, is only a hint of the majesty that lies beyond. Here, Aztec gods mingle with Jesus Christ, offering a bounty of delights and salvation from the dread of death. Figures of the past, from the ancient to the contemporary, Archimedes, Lorca, Vallejo, and Malcolm X, inspire and accompany the poet through his paces. The Mystic Thrones of Night is filled with painful tears and urgent shouts for justice, but also of those many quiet moments; a solitary stroll at night, a meditation in a car, the precious company of a lover. Avila creates characters and weaves stories for them to breathe in; with a power that leaps off the page. When stated simply, his poems surprise with riddles, when written with eloquence, they cut through Gordian knots of truth. If you have the heart of a poet, the passion of a romantic, the faith of a philosopher, and the resolve of a revolutionary, dive deep into Avila's The Mystic Thrones of Night.”
