"Except for two or three poems in the section 'Poems of bread and earth' this volume consists of poems written in gaol in spite of the deprivation of reading and writing material in nearly two years of solitary confinement. It is a map of the course trodden by the mind, not a record of the actual struggle against a vegetable existence - that belongsin another place."--Preface.
