Poetry Collection "My Paradise", 1932, and Heroic Epos "Those Touched by Eternity", 1937−1939, by Aleksandrs Čaks (1901−1950)

Born and raised in Riga, Aleksandrs Čaks was the very embodiment of an urban man. In his poetry collection “My Paradise” (Mana paradīze, 1932), he gave a voice and a soul to the seemingly ordinary people and mundane objects of city life, while in his heroic epos “Those Touched by Eternity” (Mūžības skartie, 1937−1939) he immortalized the Latvian Riflemen of the First World War.
