Dolorem Ipsum: Poetry in a time of pain by Isabel del Rio

A brief text by Cicero has become the basis of all printed books: a blueprint, a guiding light, the path to lead us exactly where we need to be. Dolorem ipsum is a poetry collection written in a time of pain and loss by Spanish author Isabel del Rio. From what our destiny has become to the mind games we need to play in order to survive; from losing our sense of belonging to the turmoil this pandemic has created; not forgetting love poems and apocryphal stories to take us through to the next stage, if there ever is one; with a quick succession of 'flatliner' poems and aphoristic triptychs, interspersed with comments on language and a few pieces of advice for these trying times.
