This is an excellent collection of ecologically and politically oriented poems for multiple readings. The speech is simple, laconic and the meanings are dense. The themes that prevail are on the one hand the great love and vigilance for the people (the “hunted”, the “dedicated”, the “tearful”), the environment, the homeland, life, and on the other the critical attitude towards in the arrogance of power, the rage for violence and fascism.
As the poet and critic Giannis Plachouris wrote in diastixo.gr: “Dimitra Pavlakou years now, with her characteristic writing, proves the reason that all words mean in the hands of a good craftsman and that all emotions can not only fit in a word but also to have a different interpretation for each of us, achieving the enchanting path of multiple reading, which only good poetry offers. ”
I hear crying
of the people
The wolves are far away
nor will their torment come
in the ears of the sleepy city
And you who think
that you are better
