“Diles que son cadáveres”, de Jordi Soler

Diles que son cadáveres es la octava novela del reputado narrador mexicano Jordi Soler, recientemente publicada por el sello barcelonés Mondadori en su colección Literatura.

La narración, ambientada en la capital irlandesa de mediados de los ochenta, enmarca un juego de excentricidades: un viaje de cuatro disímiles personajes en busca del bastón de San Patricio, una reliquia perdida.

Así, en la voz un joven diplomático (heterónimo del propio Soler), la novela nos cuenta las alocadas e hilarantes aventuras en cuya dirección les guía un poeta francés, a todas luces espíritu del reconocido Antonin Artaud, cuyo único punto inflexible es su adoración por el vino y las borracheras.

De hecho, cuenta Soler, la idea de la novela nació en sus años como agregado cultural en Dublín hacia los albores del presente siglo.

En una ocasión, en una reunión con poetas de la vieja guardia, Soler escuchó por primera vez aquel pasaje que habla sobre la visita de Artaud a Irlanda, una visita que el desequilibrado poeta realizó porque pretendía regresar el bastón de San Patricio, el cual creía poseer, a su tierra natal. Una estancia por demás dificultosa que duró apenas tres semanas y culminó con la expulsión del mentado poeta tras múltiples desencuentros con la autoridad, la mayoría de ellos debido a la sistemática evasión del pago de consumo en restaurantes y hosterías.

Soler se dijo maravillado por dicho pasaje y se propuso investigarlo a fondo. Tal fue su pasión en el tema que tardó una década entera en conformar la presente novela, cuyo título es fiel homenaje a una frase de Artaud: “Diles que son cadáveres y que jamás resucitarán entre los muertos” la cual espetó frente a un auditorio repleto de colegas, harto de sus pretensiones arribistas.

Tal fue la zambullida de Soler en el asunto que preparó una traducción de poemas de Artaud nunca antes disponibles en castellano. Dicha antología fue “realizada” por unos de los personajes principales de la presente novela y el plan era publicarla bajo dicho seudónimo de forma coordinada, un brillante ardid que no pudo realizarse debido a problemas con los derechos de autor del apoderado sello editorial galo.

Con todo, Jordi Soler afirma que la figura del poeta francés “es sólo un pretexto para hablar de las cosas en desuso, como los poetas y los diplomáticos” ya que “lo verdaderamente valioso de la vida son las cosas inútiles, comenzando por las novelas, la poesía o el arte” porque en ellas no trasluce la función única de los instrumentos, sino una infinita posibilidad de interpretaciones.

La Irlanda de Jordi Soler

Hijo de una comunidad barcelonesa exiliada en México, Jordi Soler nace entre la espesura de la selva veracruzana hacia el año de 1963. Pronto se dedicó a la escritura, entre narrativa ficcional, periodismo y crítica literaria. Su novela debut, Bocafloja (1994), ha sido señalada como estandarte de su generación.

A principios del nuevo milenio Soler trabajó como agregado cultural en Dublín, Irlanda, experiencia que sirvió como punta de lanza para la escritura de Diles que son cadáveres.

Pero su relación con Irlanda es más amplia. Soler es miembro fundador y caballero de la Orden del Finnegans, cuyo único propósito es la veneración de la novela Ulises, obra cumbre del escritor dublinés James Joyce.

La orden, que fue constituida en 2008 y cuenta con 8 miembros en activo, entre escritores, editores y comerciantes de carne, tiene por mandato peregrinar una vez al año a tierra irlandesa, en el marco del llamado “Bloomsday”, conmemorado todos los días 16 de junio desde el año 1954 y en el cual se rinde homenaje al personaje principal de la citada novela, Leopold Bloom, un homenaje literario que incluye la reproducción de los vestidos y las costumbres de la época.
