“Elizabeth Grech’s poetry is refined, essential, carved by the sounds of her land of fire and water, of flesh. Her voice is of strong intensity, traversed by sensorial synesthesia, by smells, colours and flavours that travel from Mediterranean shore to the other.”

solo para descubrir
de qué color soy.”

Only to discover
my own colour).
