Antonieta Villamil gives voice to the heartbreaking effects of the perpetual civil wars that emerge in Central and South America. Presenting the generations of people that simply disappear in these wars, Villamil uses poetry to connect with the memory of her brother Pedro who is a victim of disappearance. Antonieta Villamil reiterates the role of the poet in society: “to be the conscience of a community or a culture”.
