In his poetic reminiscences about a generation that put up a fierce fight against injustice, Sol Rachilo puts forward an urgent agenda.
The anger is not hidden, nor is his love of life and people. These poems and short prose pieces are not simply about the disappointment of a generation, they are also a call to action: “Better to be a loose cannon, than trapped in the labyrinth”, and a warning: “What happens if a dream is deferred?”
Shining out of the Rachilo’s poems we see humanity in all its manifestations – dignity, indignity and the longing to love and be loved.
