According to the poet Julio Martínez Mesanza (cf. References), Valverde Villena's poetry comes from "a perfect mixture of life and culture". His cultural references serve as proper devices to show the poet's feelings in a way which resembles the conceit used by the Metaphysical poets. Martínez Mesanza also points at John Donne and Ausias March as influences on Valverde Villena.
Valverde Villena's short poems have been called by some critics as "flash poems" or "spark poems", because they concentrate many ideas in a few lines. In the words of the poet Higazi, "it's like having a big lion in a little cage".
There are many sources to Valverde Villena's poetry: not only the literary tradition of several languages, but also History, Anthropology, Religion, Music and Cinema.
