One of Latin America's greatest poets, Roque Dalton was a revolutionary whose politics were inseparable from his art. In Stories and Poems of a Class Struggle, he explores oppression and resistance through the lens of five poetic personas, each with their own distinct voice. These poems show a country caught in the crosshairs of American imperialism, where the few rule the many and the many struggle to survive - and yet there is joy and even humour to be found here, as well as an abiding faith in humanity.
