A current global poetic trend is the composition of poetry directly integrated into the flow and daily buzz of online platforms. These so-called Twitter poems are typified by elusive and stark expression, a low-key style devoid of sentimentalities, yet often with an ironic spirit and relation to texts. Elis Burrau (born in 1992) holds a central place in the poetic generation who, in the context of scandinavianness, goes beyond merely using the available digital channels to distribute his poetry: he also allows these channels to shape his poetry. His constant presence dominates the virtual and physical space of poetry by means of an incessant mass production of the “bad side” of this lyrical binary, through which, on the one hand, he seeks – most of the time – stylistic fertilization through externalized and internalized idioms and unexpected twists, while on the other hand, allows these divergences to lead him to existential depths. His poems, much like the poet himself, move at the same pace, using life moments as an initial point of reference. To a certain degree, his poetry can be called existential; at the same time, however, it is social and talkative, quotidian and humorous, in a manner reminiscent of poems by the New York School of Poets, like Frank O’ Hara and John Ashbery.
