Alda Merini's mysticism is profoundly embodied; it renders her not more provocative, but rather more revealing and necessary. Merini's Christ is the passion of the man made word, a man whom she both loves and betrays. Cuerpo de amor does not permit reductive readings, instead leaving open the possibility of the most distant points of view being, in fact, the closest.
