One hundred years after the birth of Alarcos, the international poetry prize that bears his name celebrates in this volume of Visor the best of its two decades of existence, enhanced by the example of the philologist who was also a poet. The twenty years of the consolidated trajectory of this award, together with its twenty voices —young shoots or mature harvests— are connected with the polyhedral figure of Emilio Alarcos Llorach (1922-1998) and his substantial legacy, with which the identity of the prize, also covering it with a kind of unused lightwhich, as if it were the venerable and reborn Lighthouse of Alexandria, year after year attracts those sailors who, between sirtes and reefs, ply the waters of poetry, or dive to its bed of linguistic materials. Because, strictly speaking, the most genuine prestige of such an award sinks its roots in the one that brings it the innovative and eclectic fame of Alarcos, a timeless fame, like that of that swan imagined by Horace who spread his poetic teachings everywhere (non usitata penna… ferar ).
