JoanBrossa, Barcelona1919; TatjanaGromaca, Croatia 1972. In two differentpointsof history, separatedbymore than fiftyyears,twopeople are born. They, who will grow up in unrelated atmospheres, will fight for similar causes, nearly parallel. The Catalan’slife will be immediately influenced by the Spanish Civil War: firstly, he will have to enroll in a levy being only seventeen years old (this levy, popularly called “la Lleva del biberó”in Catalan,isfamous due to the low age of its members). Fortunately, a slight wound will allowhimtorunaway fromit. This fortuitous situationwill be aninflectionpoint in his life and since thismomenthe will start to believe in chance. Secondly, he will be forced to go to Salamanca for four years, where he will be formed to be a soldier. After that, with the Civil War finished andfascismimplemented,he will combatitwithall hisstrengthindifferentways: he will surround himself with good friends with the same ideology to write clandestine magazines,theaterplaysandabove all,tocreate combative art,usuallypoetry,which willpass through different movements like Surrealism or Dadaism. The poetess, till now, has kept a similar fight. Using only poetry, the strength of words like a weapon,aswordto stab her enemies,she hastried totransmitall the pain,the losses,the evil whichhas imbued herlandthe lastdecadesdue tothe Yugoslavian Civil War which took place at the end of the twentieth century. Her country had been artificially created by force and consequently, the discomfort exploded. Now they still suffer its consequences. Two artists, soldiers united by the same enthusiasm and hope to change the things and achieve, using words, peace, justice and freedom, someday.
