The poem �Can the Sea Fly?� gives the title to this atypical poetry book by Jos� Corredor-Matheos and with illustrations by Noem� Villamuza. It is atypical because it differs from other types of anthology for children in terms of both the poems and the illustrations. And it is in this literary �piece� that you find a poem which reminds you of a lullaby, but you can�t be sure, a haiku with a western feel, a short poem that, nevertheless, has its roots buried in the extended humorous poems by Quevedo and the classical Latin poets.
Can the Sea Fly? is a book full in its emptiness, full of colour in those spaces surrounded by large white spaces, where the text sometimes gives us an answer to the text and sometimes establishes a game of mirrors.
The reader will know how the anthology begins and will discover some previously unpublished poems by Jos� Corredor-Matheos, but will never know how, nor when it ends, even though he closes the book.
