“Lichi en todas partes”, homenaje a Eliseo Alberto

El ajedrez, gran pasión de Eliseo Alberto

El ajedrez, gran pasión de Eliseo Alberto

Eliseo Alberto falleció el pasado 31 de julio víctima de falla renal en una cama del Hospital General de la Ciudad de México. De eso hace exactamente seis semanas.

Este domingo 11 de septiembre, el Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes reunió en la sala Manuel M. Ponce del Palacio de Bellas Artes a varios de sus más cercanos amigos para recordar el legado del periodista y literato, quien fuera reconocido en 1998 con el Premio Alfaguara por su novela Caracol Beach.

La fecha del homenaje póstumo no fue dilatada sin motivo alguno. Si la muerte no hubiera llegado de imprevisto, el pasado sábado 10 de septiembre Eliseo Alberto hubiera alcanzado los 60 años de vida.

“Lichi”, como le llamaban cariñosamente sus amigos, fue poeta, periodista y narrador. De origen cubano, residió en México desde principios de la década de los noventa y adquirió la nacionalidad hacia el año 2000. Publicó en vida tres poemarios, tres libros para niños, seis novelas e innumerables colaboraciones periodísticas, la mayor parte de ellas en las columnas semanales que mantuvo en los diarios La Crónica de hoy y Milenio.

El homenaje, bajo el nombre de “Lichi en todas partes: Celebración de la vida y obra de Eliseo Alberto”, convocó este medio día de domingo a Jorge F. Hernández, Rafael Rojas y Juan Carlos García Álvarez, mejor conocido como Dr. Bolavsky, quienes, visiblemente conmovidos, leyeron fragmentos de la obra de “Lichi”.

Entre las páginas leídas, se enunciaron las primeras cuartillas de Retrato de tres reyes, título tentativo de una novela inconclusa en la que Eliseo Alberto trabajaba cuando le llegó la muerte.

En dicho relato, el autor del poemario Importará el trueno (1975) y la novela El retablo del conde Eros (2008), abundó sobre la hondura del enfrentamiento deportivo, ilustrado ello con tres casos desde grandes personalidades cubanas: el ajedrecista José Raúl Capablanca, el esgrimista Ramón Fonst y el boxeador Eligio Sardiñas Montalvo “Kid Chocolate”.
