The Poetry Collection "Si Minor", 1982, by Ojārs Vācietis (1933−1983)

The early 1980s were a bleakly pessimistic time in the Soviet Union, as Cold War tensions intensified the arms race and decades of mismanagement fed economic and social decline. One shining light in this darkness was the publication in 1982 of “Si Minor” (Si minors) by Latvian poet Ojārs Vācietis, a collection of humanistic yet profoundly spiritual poems deeply rooted in Latvia yet transcendingly universal. For both his literary talents and courage in speaking honestly, he is loved to this day many Latvians.
