Palabra de luz (sobre el futuro de los libros)

©Vladimir Kush

Libro es una palabra corpulenta, medicinal, colérica, sonora, vegetal, onírica, sagrada, trémula desde sus pisos: poética. Una forma escalonada en el tiempo. Abrir un libro nuevo es quizá uno de los instantes más poéticos que todos los días se experimenta. ¿Será por sus palabras sembradas en la página?, ¿por el aliento de bosque que derrama en su abanico? La cierto es que, después del sol, el libro es nuestro astro acompañante de todos los días. Nos escucha, observa lo que imagina nuestra frente en sus narraciones, nos pone en la distancia de un sauce de cristal y un chopo de agua. Nos lee y al leernos nos poetiza. Los libros y sus movimientos no son posibles sin nosotros.

El nuevo libro, mejor dicho, el “libro digital”, es un avance extraordinario y cómodo para los que ya la vista necia nos está llamando la atención; es un avance para la comercialización de las palabras y la reducción de un número infinito de volúmenes en una memoria digital; sin embargo, es un avance limitado pues no todos cuentan con dispositivos móviles, o acceso a internet.

Del otro lado, el “libro vegetal”, al igual que el periódico, continúa iluminándonos con sus olores y sus oleajes informativos. Se ha dicho mucho acerca del amor que se le tiene al libro clásico por su tacto y su sentido: a decir verdad el hecho de tener un libro requiere de mucha responsabilidad. ¡Ay de aquel que sólo lo compre para esclavizarlo y empolvarlo! Ambas naciones siguen en proceso.

Jorge Luis Borges escribió: «las emociones que la literatura suscita son quizá eternas, pero los medios deben constantemente variar, siquiera de un modo levísimo para no perder su virtud».

En nuestros días se nos presenta un universo de telarañas y cables digitales en los que, además de información hay seducción: ante el mundo digital somos datos sin nombre ni cifra. Transparencia en la pantalla.

El joven escritor está inerme ante un mundo concupiscente y ávido de información. ¿Hacia dónde se dirige el joven escritor sino hacia su propio origen de palabras, hacia su misma frase añejada que estalla en el ritmo de sus deseos? El deleznable desprecio por el periodismo cultural, el apoyo débil de las instituciones hacia sus jóvenes escritores, la nueva creatividad —que cada día el fotógrafo con su atractivo trabajo va anegando al poeta— y el interés colectivo hacia el cine, van alejando la seducción de la gente por los nuevos escritores.

No sé exactamente la forma que el futuro tiene escrito para el libro. Lo que sí sé es que la literatura seguirá haciéndonos y haciéndose; su futuro es su presente, pues la literatura no sólo descansa en los libros: descansa en el tiempo.

¿Cuál es el futuro del libro? Su instante más próximo encarna en el ahora, en la ruptura de la página en la que estamos escritos. No es que no haya futuro para el libro, ya sea uno “digital” o “vegetal”; mientras haya literatura habrá libros. Las palabras ya están hechas, la literatura se sigue haciendo, la poesía nos sigue haciendo. El futuro del libro dependerá de cuanto leamos, pues leyendo sobrevive el libro y nosotros con él.
